Cestrum Nocturnum: Basic Help!

9 years ago


I received a couple of night blooming jasmine from a friend and they smelled fantastic. I was told they propagate easily. I tried twice but failed. Please help on a few basics:

1. what is a soft, semi hard and hardwood cutting and how can i tell which is which?
2. what type of cutting is best for this plant?
Im wary of cutting because i dont seem good at it. I followed all the advise (clean instruments, disinfect before and after, cut at an angle near a node, etc) but most often turn brown and die.
3. What other tips and techniques will increase my chance of better propagating outcome?
