well, the main concern is with a cup of water i use to start stuff. there is this vine that i have, that you can clip, stick the clipping in water until roots shoot out of it, then plant it.

Forgot to ask -are you sure you don't have your state abbreviation backwards? Because the last time I checked Minnesota'* abbreviation was MN -not NM.





















J/K -I thought Minnesota was the only state with those bloodsuckers.

I know this may sound strange, but fill a spray bottle 3/4 full with water, add soap, dishsoap is best....NOT dishwasher soap. Then spray the plants, that should help kill the pesky bugs

Close the door, and get a screen? Maybe a drop or two of vegetable or other cooking oil in the water? That will keep a thin layer of oil on top of the water to keep the bugs out. Hopefully, it won't coat the roots too much when you pull the plant out..
