Learn how to multiply your plants: red fountain grass!
Now that the weather is cooling down in my zone 10 garden in Los Angeles, I'm doing yearly maintenance on some of my ornamental grasses.
Red fountain grass, Pennisetum setaceum enjoyed a great run this summer.
As a "warm season" grass, Pennisetum setaceum is in active growth mode throughout the summer and its feathery plumes stir up a lot of attention from passersby.
I usually let my grasses grow and leave them alone to set their own height restrictions but lately, I've noticed some of them need help with "girth control."
Their getting fat around the middle!
Good news for me because that means that the plants can afford a little "horticultural lipo" when I extract some "divisions" and create more plants!

Last week, I multiplied a Kalanchoe plant by cuttings.
