How To Propagate Your Plants

There are 3 ways to propagate plants. Each species of plant has a different propagation method. We have simplified the methods for you into bitesize and digestible instructions so you can grow your plant babies from your current plant collection! The 3 methods of propagation are division, stem cutting and tip cutting.

There are 3 main ways to propagate, and each method is best for a different plant species. We've simplified the steps for you so you can get started quickly & easily:

1. DIVISION - ferns, bird of paradise, palms, succulent. 

%list1_title_stop%

%list1_description_start% 

<ul>
<li>Get 2 pots & the proper potting mix for your plant type </li>

<li> Put down a dust sheet to collect excess potting mix. </li>

<li>Get the mother plant. Separate the roots of the plant into 2 with your hands. </li>

<li>Place the halves into their new pot, scooping potting mix into it - covering the roots & base of the plant</li>


= SO SIMPLE!

</ul>

2. STEM CUTTING - satin pothos, monstera, philodendron scandens, prayer plant
%list2_title_stop%


%list2_description_start%

<ul>

<li>Find a stem or branch that has 2-3 healthy leaves growing on it.</li>

<li>Find the node on the stem or branch of your plant. Node = the little bumps below each leaf - basically baby roots. </li>

<li>Cut 2 inches below the node. </li>

<li>Fill a glass vessel with room temp water & place the new cutting into it making sure the node is submerged! </li>

<li>Keep refreshing the water every week (or when it looks green and mouldy)! </li>

<li>Keep watch over your propagated cutting over the next few weeks. We recommend letting your new babies roots to grow in its' water vase for 1 - 2 months. The more mature the root-ball or root-system the less shock the plant will be when you eventually pot into soil. So best to let it grow for a while!  </li>

<ul>

3. TIP CUTTING - fiddle leaf fig, rubber plant, snake plant, ZZ plant, yucca, money tree 
%list3_title_stop%

%list3_description_start%

<ul>
<li>Find a green healthy stem or branch. Avoid the bark, find the green area close to the leaf. </li>

<li>Cut 2 inches below the leaf, at 45 degree angle.</li>

<li>Fill vessel with room temp water. Place the cutting in the vessel and ensure the cut is completely submerged in water. The roots develop from here. </li>

</ul>
