I took some cuttings from petunias three weeks ago. Now they have rooted well and have doubled in size. I will re pot this group this week and will need to trim them back. I would assume i can take the cutting from the newly rotted group?...Jack

You can but be careful about taking too much from any single plant.

no problem, just make sure your mother plant is very healthy

RE: Cuttings from cuttings

I have thought about doing the same thing, but I have more than enough petunias at this point and am out of space. You definitely want to at least pinch back the cutting, so they bush out. Three weeks seems a little young to do more than snip off one piece, but if you do that, in three more weeks it may be ready to give you several cutting from each.
