Propagation Tips

Propagation 

Propagating your plant in water is one of the easiest propagation methods, just follow the steps below:

1. Prune the cutting you wish to propagate from your plant, preferably with at least two leaves. Make sure you use very sharp scissors or pruning shears that are sanitised prior. 

2. This step applies to some plant species, but not all, when propagating. Before the cutting is placed in water it needs to be left in a warm place to cure for several hours. This will ensure the fresh end of the cutting can callous over, preventing it from rotting once in water. 

3. Once you put the cutting in water, place it somewhere warm with bright indirect light. Make sure to replace the water every few days to keep it clean and bacteria-free. 

4. Your plant should begin to develop roots in as little as a week. Once the roots are over 5cm long, you can plant the cutting into soil. Make sure to keep the soil moist (but not soaked) and in a warm position for a few more weeks while it adjusts to its new pot.
