How to Winterize Bacopa Plants

Bacopa plants produce long stems of foliage with many small blossoms, which make the plant a popular choice for arranging in hanging baskets or serving as a border or filler plant. Since the plant regenerates itself well from cuttings, removing stems from a mature plant and bringing them inside during the winter to root will give you a new crop of bacopa to eventually plant outside in the warmer months.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Bacopa plant
  • Scissors

  1. 1

    Cut several 8-inch stems from a mature bacopa plant.

  2. 2

    Remove any leaves from the bottom four inches of the cut stems.

  3. 3

    Fill the containers with fresh water.

  4. 4

    Place the bacopa cuttings in containers.

  5. 5

    Keep the containers with the bacopa on a windowsill so the cuttings receive many hours of sunlight, or place the containers under growing lights in a greenhouse. The bacopa cuttings will generate roots and can then be transplanted into the ground after the frost.
