Tips For a Successful Houseplant Propagation

Whether you're propagating your houseplants by stem or leaf cuttings, here are some tips for a successful houseplant propagation...

1. Propagate From a Healthy Mother Plant
Give your new plant cutting a head start on their new life journey by using a cutting from an established, healthy, Mother plant.

2. Use a Soil-less Mix
Standard potting soil is typically too rich for new, tender, roots. We recommend using a mason jar filled with water to allow your new cuttings to develop roots. See propagation photo below.
