Does anyone have any idea where to purchase ti-logs? I am looking for some really nice ones. I Purchase some logs last year where you had to scrape wax off the ends and soak in water and none of them rooted. I bought 3 red and 3 green.The place I bought them new they were old. The package they came in was not new. Don't think I will use this kind again. If you can give me some tips or some places I can get some of these at reasonable price please let me know. thanks

RE: ti-logs

Someone else might correct me here but I think the plants sold as "ti plants" are just either Cordyline or Plumeria or something like that. Try searching for these.

RE: ti-logs

They are (usually, always?) Cordyline fruticosa. recent ti log discussion. Cordyline plants are not hard to find at BBS's, though "find" is the operative word, they have them occasionally, usually in spring down here. Not a constant like Scheff, Sans, Pothos.

RE: ti-logs

Ohhh wow what memories!
We bought these when I was a teen many decades ago down in
Hermosa/Redondo beach. We never soaked them or scraped off
the wax. We did lay them flat on top of the soil, it took a good long
time to produce shoots.
Good luck,

RE: ti-logs

RE: ti-logs

Yes, a blast from the past. I remember it was the hip thing to have back in the 70's & 80's and all we would do was lay them on top of the soil, if my brain remembers correctly it took months to see any growth...Keep us posted when you start one
