Protea propagation from cut flowers?

15 years ago

Can Proteas be propagated from the stems of cut flowers? My guess as to what I have is P. neriifolia and P. 'Pink ice' (P. neriifolia x P. susannae). What are the best methods to do this? The flowers are just starting to open, so they are probably fresh.

They have long stems that have mostly been stripped of leaves. Is there any chance that segments of the leafless regions will root?

Any personal experiences (positive or negative) attempting this would be particularly useful.
