How to Plant Lantana From Cuttings
Mix peat moss and coarse, clean sand in a 50/50 blend.
Place a thin layer of pea-sized gravel on the bottom of the planting container.
Cover the gravel with the peat moss and sand mixture, making sure the soil mixture is at least 2 inches deep.
Take cuttings from the new growth of a Lantana plant. Choose stems that are not flowering and are still green. The cuttings should be about 3 inches long. Make a clean cut at a slight angle.
Remove any leaves from the bottom half of the cuttings.
Coat the ends of the cuttings with root growth hormone by dipping them into the hormone mixture.
Push the ends of the cuttings into the soil mixture so that they are standing upright.
Water thoroughly. Make sure water is draining from the bottom of the container. The cuttings may not root if left in soggy soil.
Cover the container and cuttings with plastic wrap.
Place the container in a location that receives filtered sunlight and maintains a consistent temperature.
Water the cuttings when the soil begins to dry out. Be careful not to over-water. Let the soil dry slightly between waterings.
Remove the plastic wrap after about 3 weeks, or when new leaves begin to appear on the cuttings.
Plant individual cuttings in pots when they have grown 4 to 5 inches from their original size.
