How To Propagate Lavender By Stem Cutting 2

For the second time, I've been able to root lavender via stem cutting.  This makes rooting lavender in water a repeatable technique.  Of course it helps that the sun is just right.    And as you can see from the picture I made the soil level really low again (less than half the pot).  That's not soil either.  That's pure vermicast. By the way, I guess this means that you don't need a rooting hormone to propagate lavender.  I think that's a relevant point because most material that you find on the Internet would cite the need for a rooting hormone. 

Next time I'll take a picture of the mother plant.  I've pruned six stems already for the cuttings.  You'll observe that it's a little more bushy now than before.
