quick update by swimcat....

including cuttings that are already rooting. apparently, these plants seem to love the british summer!

salvias can also be cloned straight into soil but it is gentler on the plant to do in water...

don't you just love the colour green !?

includes original cutting picture.....

some cuttings rooted in plain tap water here...

as you can see cuttings can be quite small, in fact they may even be preferable to larger ones......

apparently trimming the leaves is a good idea so the cutting can concentrate on rooting and doesn't have to work hard maintaining large leaves...

Hi. I am new here. I live in Alaska. This is my plant (sorry about bad lighting). What do you think I should do with it at this stage?

Looks fine to me. If you have the room, you might put them in a bigger pot, soon or a bit later. Nice pic :)
