Fuschia Cutting's

plant in pot with good drainage, the most inportant thing is not to over water and be patient and not tempted to pull out the cutting to soon,it might look dead but wait a little and it will come to life and also not to hot enviroment.some people use plant hormone or as  monty a vit c tablet but me I just stick  a heel cutting into the pot.
