Ficus, geraniums, all succulent plants, as well as cacti can be propagated by stem cuttings.
This type of stalk can only be cut from a healthy plant, and the cut must be made slightly below the node. Such a stalk should consist of 3 or 4 nodes and leaves should be present on it. Pay attention to the cut, it must be fresh and even. There should be no flowers or buds on the handle. If desired, the leaves from the bottom can be torn off. Rooting is carried out in moist soil, which contains a lot of sand, or a soil mixture for young plants is used for this. After the roots appear (after about 3-4 weeks), the plants are transplanted into an ordinary soil mixture. Most cuttings are rooted simply by dipping them in a glass of water.
Cuttings of geraniums, as well as succulent plants, are not covered with a film during rooting. All other plants need high humidity at this time, so they need to be covered with plastic.
As a rule, it is recommended to place the cuttings in a well-lit and warm enough place. Don’t forget to protect them from direct sunlight. These cuttings are propagated in spring and summer when the plant is growing rapidly. But there are plants that are best propagated in this way in the last summer days, for example, geranium of fuchsia. The middle stalk is considered part of the stem. Cut it off from the middle or bottom of the shoot. Such cuttings are used for the propagation of Tradescantia.
