Step 1: Step 1
Mix peat moss and coarse, clean sand in a 50/50 blend.
Step 2: Step 2
Place a thin layer of pea-sized gravel on the bottom of the planting container.
Step 3: Step 3
Cover the gravel with the peat moss and sand mixture, making sure the soil mixture is at least 2 inches deep.
Step 4: Step 4
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.
Step 5: Step 5
Remove any leaves from the bottom half of the cuttings.
Step 6: Step 6
Coat the ends of the cuttings with root growth hormone by dipping them into the hormone mixture.
Step 7: Step 7
Push the ends of the cuttings into the soil mixture so that they are standing upright.
Step 8: Step 8
Water thoroughly. Make sure water is draining from the bottom of the container. The cuttings may not root if left in soggy soil.
Step 9: Step 9
Cover the container and cuttings with plastic wrap.
Step 10: Step 10
Place the container in a location that receives filtered sunlight and maintains a consistent temperature.
Step 11: Step 11
Water the cuttings when the soil begins to dry out. Be careful not to over-water. Let the soil dry slightly between waterings.
Step 12: Step 12
Remove the plastic wrap after about 3 weeks, or when new leaves begin to appear on the cuttings.
Step 13: Step 13
Plant individual cuttings in pots when they have grown 4 to 5 inches from their original size.
