This photo of my Fuchsia was taken before the last thunderstorm. She looks somewhat bedraggled right now. I purchased it this spring in a 2 inch pot and she is now overflowing a 12 inch pot. This plant is incredibly easy to propogate vegetatively. Just dip a cutting into rooting hormone, slip it into some potting soil and keep moist for a couple of weeks. The hard part is pinching back the growing tips when you can see blossoms beginning. However, serious pinching will produce a beautiful, bushy plant with loads of blooms.
