In this regard, how do you prune a cigar plant?
They grow as annuals in cooler zones.

- Repeat the pinching out at any time if your cigar plant begins to look leggy.
Furthermore, how do you propagate Cuphea? Simply cut a 3-4" length from the tip of new stem, strip the leaves from the bottom inch, dip the cut end in rooting hormone and place it in a container of moistened potting soil. Protect from sunshine, keep the soil moist but not soggy wet, and in a few weeks your cuttings should develop roots.

Can azaleas grow from cuttings?
