Ololiuqui Propagation
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Angela Yorton
Posted on: August 15, 2001

I purchased an ololiuqui plant from Richters several months ago, and it is now a big, beautiful vine. What is the best way to propagate this plant? Will it seed itself, and if so, where do the seeds come from? Could I try cuttings? If you could tell me about both methods, it would be greatly appreciated!

The plant is related to morning glories and will eventually produce white morning glory-like flowers. You could artifically pollinate them and hope for fruits with viable seeds. The seeds will not be released by the fruit (unlike morning glories) and may be hard to germinate. We have never tried to produce seeds on our plants and can therefore not speak from personal experience. We propagate our plants from cuttings and find that they root fairly easily.
