Leaf Propogation

 Plants world is mysterious and exciting at the same time .I have always been interested in discovering new ideas for propagation of plants and here I want to share a technique of propagation of plants through their leaves .Leaf propagation is an exciting way to propagate and multiply your collection of specific variety of  plant . Although it is a fact that not many plants can be propagated through this technique but the ones that can be grown easily are Kalanchoe, Sansevieria , Begonia,Hoya,Sedum,Episcia ,Peperomia ,Jade and many other varieties of plants.

Here I want to explain about the most easy propagation of leaf which is from Kalanchoe pinnata plant 

            This below is a successful propagation of Kalanchoe pinnata leaf as little new plants emerging from the leafs can be seen                                                                           

It is important to know that for propagation leaf should be covered within soil partially so that roots can develop and new plant can grow easily

Care tips  during Leaf Propagation

Leaf used for propagation should be enough  thick  so that it has strength to hold the new plants until roots are established.

Leaf should be kept in shaded area until new plants develop roots and are ready to be transplanted.

Meanwhile Petunias have started blooming with drop in temperatures.


I was able to spot Brahminy Starling at roof


And Pigeons all over the sky

  10. Hello,

    Love the pretty clouds and sky photo. Beautiful flowers and a pretty Starling.
    Take care, have a happy weekend!

  11. On the sansevaria cuttings you rooted, I've read that the new growth reverts. I don't understand it! But I do see the baby leaves don't seem to have the yellow outer band. Do you know anything about this?

    1. Hi Sara I have hear about it that rooted cuttings tend to change color of variegated variety be it sanseviera ,Ficus,Jade or any other plant .It should be noted that it is a fact from my experience it takes some time for the new cutting to get the exact color of the mother plant .
      Thanks for visiting.
