2. Grow periwinkle from stem cutting

Stem cutting is a great way to have a periwinkle plant in a quicker time. It will take only 2-3 days to come out roots in your cutting when planted in soil. Still, you can add a precautionary procedure while trying to grow periwinkles from cutting.

Rooting hormone will ensure the rooting of the cutting. There are other natural ways also to enhance rooting in stem cutting like using Aloe vera. But you need not be that bothered by rooting periwinkles actually. mostly putting the cut into the soil is way enough.

Hope you will be succeeded to have this wonderful flower in your garden or yard!
