It took me too long to place this potted Salvia patens in the ground, and small as it is it started producing flower buds.

As summer is coming now to the southern hemisphere where I live, should I

1. nip off the buds?

2. pinch the growing tip?

3. do both?

Thank you in advance !

Number 4 might be a Cephalaria, whereas number 5 looks like Physostegia...

What is this plant?

Leaves are very much like those of strawberry plants!

 A white Nemesia, maybe?

If you leave the roots undisturbed, the cuttings will root more quickly, but the plant is not fussy: it will probably send brand new roots once it meets dampness on the soil.

Monsteras have adventitious roots (growing everywhere along the stem), and they grow easily once

detached from the mother plant. I usually prune them hard every year, but if you think the stems are

too large, remove everything, chop the upper parts of the stems WITH ROOTS in 30cm long sections,

and simply place them on tilled earth (you don´t have to cover them). They grow very quickly.

Zinnia haageana

Plant ID and advice appreciated.

It´s a lantana, Milly.

I think it's some sort of geranium

I think one could take a look at Geranium abrotanifolium (at least it's woody and has pink flowers!).
