RE: rooting violas

I haven't personally tried it, but I've read that supposedly they're pretty easy to root from cuttings. Also, I CAN say from personal experience, that cutting off the leggy stems will help the original plant grow back from the base. So at any rate, try it! At the very least, your 'mother' plant will benefit by growing back bushier.
