If you want to grow new plants, propagation is the first step. We sell a wide range of plant propagation supplies so you can get growing fast and efficiently, whatever your propagation method may be.
What Is Plant Propagation?
Plant propagation is the process of growing new plants. This growth typically occurs through sexual reproduction, which involves mixing pollen from a male flower with an egg from a female flower. You can also create new plants through asexual propagation, also known as cloning, by using pieces of a mother plant to grow genetically identical new plants.
There are several different types of cutting methods for asexual propagation. When you perform root cutting, you remove a section of roots from the mother plant and bury them just below the soil’s surface. The roots produce new shoots, and eventually, new bulbs can be propagated.
If your plants have a branching structure with numerous stems on each branch, stem cuttings are usually ideal for propagation. For proper stem cutting, cut a four to five-inch stem and remove the lowest leaves. Your prepared cutting should include two or three top leaves and two to four inches of stem with a leaf node at the base an inch or so above the cut. You will then place the stem in your growing medium with the media just covering the top of the node.
Some plants with leaves can be propagated with leaf cuttings. This method requires you to cut the leaf with a small section of stem and then place it in moist soil or substrate to grow.
