Hi,

 

I have just purchased a gorgeous Senetti yesterday. I was wondering how to make more of these plants. Cuttings or seed extraction? How would I go about doing this?There is not much on the internet about how to do this.

I experimented with senetti few years back hoping to produce summer floweriing plants by cutting back very hard.  They produced short dumpy plants ..not too impressive.

Cuttings were easy.....after flowering I just inserted non flowered shoots into mpc with added perlite.  Kept pinching out to produce bushy plants for next spring.  

They can be hit by frosts though.

Have you looked at the label on these plants? It said on one I looked at yesterday it is illegal to propagate these without a seed growers licence.

The Senetti name is copyrighted so I don't think you could sell them as such but they are a hybrid so they might get called something else

Commonly called cineraria.
