Can you take cuttings from peppers
Thanks for your email.
It is possible to take cuttings of peppers. You need to use a sterile knife and cut a non-woody section with at least six leaves. Dip the end of the cutting in rooting powder and place the cutting in a vermiculite. You’ll need to keep the cuttings well misted and check them regularly. Once you can see a root ball, pot up the cutting.
I have never done this as peppers are so easy to grow from seed and cuttings are very tricky. If you have a particular plant that you want to propagate, I would suggest saving some seed from it. Simply scrape the seeds from one of the peppers and spread them on a tray. Pop them in the airing cupboard, or somewhere warm and dry, for a couple of weeks. Then put them in a seed packet or envelope and sow them next year.
If you do take cuttings, I would be very interested to hear how you get on.
