Japanese Aucuba: Cutting Has New Leaves!

In late September of last year, I took a cutting from my Japanese aucuba plant and placed it in a small bottle of tap water, hoping it img_1516would root (nothing else added but TLC). It’s been almost 7 months later and now is forming new leaves at the base. I’ve done nothing with it yet, but will be transferring it into its own potting soil-filled container soon since my goal is to develop mature Japanese aucuba plants for my garden.

From this success, I will be taking a few more cuttings from my mature plant. My front yard shade garden will be awash in these lovely plants!

CONSUMER ALERT: Japanese aucuba has been reported to be poisonous, though the level of toxicity has been reported to be minor.
