Help;

Could someone post a picture of where and how do I take
a cutting . I've searched the web and all I find is make
the cutting 3-4 inches long.

I started my geraniums from seed this year"first time" and
discovered that geraniums started from seed take about
5 months to flower, where as a cutting takes a lot less.

I remember one time I couldn't stand the smell of them but
now I realize just how beautiful then are,and the older
I get, they really don't smell that bad after all.

Thanks
Donnie

say that...honey put down that hoe... :(

When I did mine I didn't measure, i looked at the stem and cut where it was still green, just below a "joint", not into the brown stem, dipped it in rooting hormone then into potting soil. Then a couple of pieces broke off and i put them in water and theyre starting to root.
Heres a google picture, see at the bottom the "joint"
