It's about time to cut it, and I'm going to stick it in the moss to try for strikes, but I'd like some advice from those who have done it.
I've always thought you put the cut end about 1 inch deep in the moss, at least that's the pics I've seen. But I recently read (now, Murphy's Law, I can't find it to cite it) that you put the flower end into the moss. Maybe the author misspoke, or I read it wrong, but can this be done? Has anyone tried it? Logically, the tip of the stalk is the part that's growing, so it may be more productive. But when are plants logical, right? I haven't tried a flower stalk cutting ever, so I have no frame of reference to compare it to.
I have also read (again, I cannot find it now) that you can place the stalk cutting horizontally across the moss, lightly cover it so that it still gets light, and get strikes for the length of the stalk. Is this also a thing?
I'm not looking to get as many babies as possible to sell, I give a lot to teachers (I work for the County School System) and I have a few requests to hopefully fill when we return in the fall.
Your thoughts and advice are appreciated.
