Easy to propagate houseplants!


When you replant and prune the potted plants, you can easily make new seedlings from cuttings. Many people root without problems in a glass of water, but the safest method is to put them in a lean mixture of sand and soil, so-called planting soil.

Make a top cutting by cutting off the top so that about 8-10 cm remains. Remove the lower leaves. You only want to have two leaves left in the top.

Insert the cuttings into the soil using a stick or stick, and press to the soil so that it makes contact around the cuttings. This is how you can multiply, for example hibiscus, geranium, wandering Jew and benjaminfikus. The soil should be kept moist, but not wet. Feel free to have a plastic bag over the pot, to create a warm microclimate that promotes root formation.

Do you want to multiply begonia, leaf cactus or saintpaulia it is enough that you only take one leaf, with a piece of the petiole and stick it into the sandy soil. Even over these cuttings, you can create a microclimate with a plastic bag over the pot.


Things to do in the garden in February

Sweden is an elongated country, and it is probably in February that it is most noticeable. The snow can be meters thick in the northern parts and in the south, spring can be felt in the air. The darkness is still noticeable in most places and good lighting is a key factor if you want to start your crops and make your potted plants feel good.

Garden tips for February

Prepare flower beds and cultivation beds

If you do not have frost in the soil, it is excellent to prepare new flower beds and cultivation beds this year. The soil is moist and it is easy to dig up roots and other things that you want to get rid of. Even certain types of weeds, such as cherry blossoms, have roots that are clearly visible when nothing else grows that you want to keep.

If you would rather build your beds on the height, it is also fine now. Jessica tells how she does, by founding new cultivation beds with branches and rice and then filling with leaves and soil on top.

Root sweet potatoes

Why not try growing sweet potatoes this year? It's a bit of a challenge, but fun. Sweet potatoes are a heat-demanding plant, so a prerequisite is that you have access to a greenhouse or a conservatory. And you will need a really big pot / box so that the tubers can have room to develop.

To begin with, buy a couple of organic sweet potatoes in the grocery store and place in a glass of water. Then set bright and make sure the water does not evaporate. After a week or two, you will see small shoots develop.

You can read more about how it went when I grew sweet potatoes here.

So artichoke

The pride of the kitchen garden needs to be sown early to have time to develop, so if you are looking forward to home-grown artichoke in the autumn, it is high time to get up to speed now! Sow seeds in spacious pots and place bright and warm.

Spring-winter pruning

Some trees are great to prune in February, such as apple and pear trees, it is easy to see where to cut when not all leaves obscure the view. When pruning, it is important to have good and sharp tools of good quality. You may need:

  • A secateurs
  • A jigsaw
  • A secateurs with telescopic shafts, if there are tall trees

This winter, I myself will prune my schersmin, which is starting to get too big and ricey. Other plants that can be pruned well now are: willow, rowan, oxberry and dogwood.

Plant lighting

Both seeds and potted plants feel good from extra lighting during the dark season. If you have the opportunity, feel free to place a light ramp or lamp over your plants. Special plant lighting is rarely needed, it often works well with ordinary lamps as long as they provide enough brightness. If you want to read more, Jessica explains the concepts here.

Plan the growing year and start the tomato seeds

At the beginning of the year, there are many dreams that lie and grow and it is a good time to think and plan ahead. We enlisted the help of other experienced garden lovers and gardeners who share their knowledge. For example, Jenny Löfström gives tips on how to think when planning the growing year, and Ingegerd on her tomato seeds.

Take winter cuttings

When you want to propagate plants and get more plants of the same variety, you can do it in different ways. In February, you can take winter cuttings, which you make from woody plants such as forsythia, lilac and dogwood. Here you can read how to take winter cuttings and, and feel free to take advantage now that much else is standing still in the garden.


In connection with transplanting, it is advisable to cut down the potted plants and what is left over can be new plants for you or someone else.

Now during the spring, winter and spring, it is usually easiest to propagate potted plants. When transplanting, it is good to cut back the plants and then it may be an opportunity to find out cuttings to renew the plants or to get more for yourself or your friends.

During the winter, most of the plants have rested more or less and the growth has been small. As a result, the stems have "matured" and various chemical substances have made it easier for roots to form. Now that the light has begun to return, growth is also beginning to increase. The cuttings should be taken from healthy plants and from healthy but preferably slightly wooded stems. If cuttings are taken from poor mother plants, various diseases can follow and then the new plant will also be attacked. Root formation gets worse from bad cuttings and the result can be unsuccessful. However, a plant can be saved by taking cuttings from bad mother plants. If the single specimen is about to die, the variety can sometimes be saved by taking cuttings. Such cuttings should be cared for more carefully and possibly placed on their own if the cause of the poor condition of the mother plant is due to some disease. Various viral diseases can be transmitted from diseased to healthy plants. Both plant sap and tools can spread the infection.

The cuttings are best taken by cutting them with a sharp knife and they should be cut off just below a leaf. The bottom leaf is removed and possibly some more or a few leaves. If the leaves are large, you can remove parts of the leaves. However, there should always be some leaf left on the cutting. The best result is if cuttings are stuck directly into the pot. By putting several cuttings in the same pot, it becomes a stronger plant and three cuttings spread in the pot often gives a nice full plant. For cuttings, use plastic pots that retain moisture better than clay pots. The best soil is ordinary compost soil or planting soil that has been mixed with a little sand to make the soil a little more porous. The soil should be moist enough and it should be watered a little so that the soil collects around the cutting. Then the soil can dry a little before putting a plastic bag over the cutting. The best rooting is in a bright place but not with too much scorching sun. The cuttings usually take root better at higher temperatures and plants that grow in really hot places often need to be kept warm in order for them to take root. Cuttings can also be planted in different small pots or Jiffy7, but then cuttings often need a little more care to keep them moist enough. Cuttings can also be put in a glass of water, where they form roots before being put in the pot. Easy-rooted plants can very well be put in water first, but plants that are more difficult-rooted feel better to be stuck directly into the soil. While waiting for suitable pots, you can always put the cuttings in water. Unfortunately, a few days easily turn into weeks and before you have finished planting them, they have still managed to take root.

Cacti and succulent plants can stand for a few days so that the cut surfaces dry up properly before they are put in even more sandy soil. Other plants with a lot of plant sap such as All tuber plants (poinsettia and Christ's crown of thorns, among others) can be stopped from flowing blood by burning the incision with a match on both the mother plant and the cutting.

Some plants can also be propagated by a leaf or just part of a leaf. There, saintpaulia and cornet flower (Streptocarpus) are the most common and simplest. But also some leaf begonias e.g. rexbegonia and mother-in-law's tongue can be propagated by a leaf or even part of a leaf and they are stuck down a small piece in a pot with a little sandy soil. In general, it usually takes a little longer before it becomes a plant from a leaf. The leaf can not grow without small leaves forming next to it and only then can it be seen that the propagation has succeeded. Different plants take different lengths of time before the cutting or leaf has taken root. Therefore, one should wait and not give up. In extreme cases, it can take up to a year before the cuttings start to grow. As long as the cutting looks healthy, there is always hope. Do not try to pick up the cuttings to see if they have formed roots, most often the possible thin roots are damaged and this can mean that the cuttings die instead. After the cutting has taken root, it can be planted in a clay pot and you have a new pot plant that is exactly the same as the old one.

Plants that form side rosettes or form offshoots can be carefully divided and planted in a new pot. If they are easily divisible, they can be pulled apart carefully, otherwise they are divided with a sharp knife. The small plant should at least have some roots left and the mother plant should be handled extra carefully. The most suitable time to divide plants is at the end of the dormant period before they have started to grow significantly again.

Propagation of potted plants

Some methods, such as Taking cuttings and planting them is easy, while others like planting are more time consuming.

Unlike outdoor plants, potted plants do not often come from seeds. This is mainly because there are more suitable alternatives. Below is a list of the most common:

Cuttings
Most potted plants can be grown from cuttings, which are taken on the stem, leaf or woody stems. Since you can never count on 100% success, it is advisable to always take several cuttings at a time.

Stem cuttings
This type of cuttings is taken in much the same way as on outdoor plants and the cuttings do not bear any flowers. Do not allow the cuttings to be longer than 15 cm. The lower part should be taken just below a leaf and from half the cutting and upwards the leaves are removed.

You put several cuttings around the edge in a pot of flower soil and help them take root by creating a greenhouse atmosphere by e.g. put them in a plastic bag.

Cuttings
On plants whose leaves grow directly on the stem, cuttings are taken directly from the leaf and put in soil to take root in the usual way.

The whole leaf and a piece of the stem are taken from plants of the type Sankt Paulia and Gloxinia, while you can take vertical parts of a leaf from Cornet flowers and Mother-in-law tongue (Sanseveria).

You can propagate some succulents by picking leaves, letting them harden for 48 hours and then putting them in flower soil.

Wooded stem cuttings
Woody stem cuttings can be bought ready-to-plant. This method is easy to handle and a good way to increase the possession of thick-stemmed plants. Use plants of the type Dracanea and Dieffenbachia (dot leaf plants).

An adult woody stem with at least one leaf node can be cut into several parts. Each part is laid flat on the ground in a pot and buried down to half. The leaf nodes should point upwards and shoots will grow out of them.

Laying down
This method is simple but takes time to yield results. It is similar to laying for outdoor plants, but instead of taking a long stem and attaching it to the soil to make it take root, you give the stem the shape of a hairpin and attach it to a small earth-filled pot next to it.

As this method takes time, it is advisable to lay several stems at the same time. When they start to shoot shoots, it is a sign that they have recovered and then it is time to separate them from the mother plant.

This method is suitable for climbing and climbing plants, e.g. ivy.

Shot
Many houseplants produce new "baby" plants at the end of flowering stems and t.o.m. on leaves, and they can be easily poked down and rooted in flower soil.

Sometimes the baby plant already has roots and then you can separate it directly from the mother plant and you do not have to wait to plant it out.

If the baby plant has no roots, it can be put in flower soil and separated from the mother plant when it has taken root. This method is suitable for Chlorophytom plants, Saxifraga stolonifera and Tolmeia.

Sharing
Many potted plants form clusters of cuttings around the mother plant and they can be planted separately and grow separately. But to access them, you have to take the whole plant out of the pot.

You have to scrape off the soil so you can see where the cuttings are stuck in the mother plant. In that bracket, separate it from the mother plant with your hands or with a sharp knife. Then you can put the mother plant back in its pot and the cuttings in flower soil in new pots.

This method is suitable for St. Paula, some ferns, Cyperus and Sanseveria (mother-in-law's tongue).

Air deposition
This is a wise propagation method that gives you a new plant without disturbing the mother plant. It is suitable for thick-stemmed plants, the type rubber plant (wardrobe flower).

Select a healthy stem and make a cut no more than 60 cm from the top of the stem, which has a leaf a few cm above the cut surface and not deeper than the middle. Put some moss in the cut with a knife blade, put the rest of the moss around the stem and some plastic around the stalk below the cut and tie. Leave it for at least one growing season and then check if roots have grown through the moss. In that case, cut off the stem below, loosen the moss and plant the stem.


A description of how to propagate the potted plants through different types of cuttings. It is important to propagate the plants during the bright season and not wait until autumn.

I choose to write this article that has previously been published in Dalabygden without changes. Cuttings can also be easily taken during early summer and summer.

Easy to propagate houseplants! - garden

Name: The angel trumpet
Scientific name: Brugmansia spp

Size: Shrubs or small trees that can grow up to 5 meters high. Egg-round leaves that are 15-30 centimeters long and 8-15 centimeters wide, and covered with fine hair growth.

Location: Should be partially shaded to sunny. Be careful with too much scorching sun and too much wind and draft.

Flowering: Blooms from spring to autumn if the climate allows. The hanging flowers consist of petioles shaped like a 9-12 centimeter long tube, as well as the funnel-like crown with five elongated lobes. The crown can be 25-30 centimeters long and is usually yellowish or white.

Watering: The angel trumpet requires plenty of water during the summer, but only sparing watering during the winter to avoid root drought.

Fattening: Regular plant nutrition once a week in summer. No nutrition during the winter, when the angel trumpet goes into winter dormancy.

Soil: Nutritious, constantly moist soil with a neutral pH value. Ordinary potting soil often works well, especially with a small addition of minileca and clay soil.

Proliferation: It is easy to replace the parts of the plant that remain after pruning. Put the shoots in water until roots are formed, or let the cut surface dry a little and put it directly into the soil. Dried seeds from seed capsules can also be grown on your own.

Generally: The name Änglatrumpet has its origins in the dramatic and fragrant flowers that with their shape and size resemble wind instruments.

The Angel Trumpet was discovered by Christopher Columbus during his exploration of the American continent. Its natural range extends from southeastern Brazil, along the Andes to northern Chile.

It can be difficult to get Änglatrumpeten to bloom during very hot summers and drooping leaves often show that the heat is too high, or that it gets too little water. It is perennial and it is easy to store it in winter with minimal care requirements. The temperature should not be below 10 degrees, even if the roots are vigorous and may well survive a cold snap and recover well before the start of the growing season in March-April.
