Prepare the plant the night before by watering it abundantly. And follow these 5 steps:
Step 1. Locate a node
This is the most important step. You should locate a node on the stem and include it in your cutting. If you don’t, the roots will not be able to grow. They look like bamboo rings on a stem.
Step 2. Cut the vine
Your scissors should be sanitized before cutting to avoid contamination. Take a stem cut with a knot (and preferably a single leaf). The ideal measurement is between 7 cm and 12 cm.
Step 3. Root it in water.
Leave the jar in a sunny place. In a few weeks you will see how roots begin to grow. Change the water periodically, replenishing with fresh, clean water every few weeks or as needed.
Step 4. Plant the cutting
Put it in a pot with soil, press hard and water it abundantly. The substrate where we plant the cutting must be rich in organic matter and have good drainage. Just as important is to protect the cutting from winds and direct sun, especially if it is already hot.
Depending on the plant and the conditions of the cutting, we will see that it begins to develop and new buds and leaves begin to sprout. At that time, we will be able to transplant the plant to a sunnier area.
Step 5. Water frequently and avoid direct sun
Newly transplanted plants should be protected from direct sunlight to avoid sun damage. Gradually increase sunlight and sun exposure according to the needs of the plant as it matures. Don't forget to avoid direct sun and water frequently for a month.
