Chelle... Yep it is. Once I get a bunch of seedlings going I cut them back as soon as they have a little bit of height on them. That will cause them to sprout new shoots by the crown and it easy to pull those babies out and put into different pots. Oh and they like a more acidic type of soil.

If your holes are bigger than the seeds, put a little piece of cheescloth or a coffee filter in there and a bowl underneath to catch any seeds that fall out. Some time you can rub the seeds together between your fingers and you will see that you end up with a teeny tiny black spot and that is the seed. They just about microscopic once the seed coat is off them. Blinking

I have never tried to root cuttings of it though. I don't know about your area, but with it being a hard one to get germination from a one gallon pot that not maybe more than about 8 to 10" tall will go for 20 bucks down here.

I'm looking at these Tithonia seeds and sighing and getting ready to try and get them to sow again. Will this be the year for success or will I fail and be begging again another year for more seeds. *Blush* Crying Whistling Hilarious!
