Where to Take a Plant Cutting
December 22, 2018
Plants have varying requirements for how, where, and when to take cuttings, the ideal size of the cuttings, and how long they may take to root. Some plants, such as succulents, will root from the base of a leaf. Others, like begonias and African violets, will root straight from the leaf surface.
Many perennials are propagated by taking root cuttings or divisions. You can propagate certain tropicals, such as pothos ivy, by setting a stem in water for a few weeks.
