Propagation and growing cuttings of Houseplants

 This rainy season is perfect to multiply houseplants as there is enough moisture in the environment that helps in faster growth of the roots in the plant cuttings.

While it is also a fact that not every houseplant can be propagated though cutting but there are many plants that can easily propagate from a small stem cutting in any type of soil mixture 


                                                      Root developed in  Pothos cutting 


                  Jade is one of the most hardy houseplant that can be easily propagated through cutting 


                                             Dracena can also be grown easily with stem cutting


There are many houseplants such as Rhoeo Plant ,Snake Plant,Wandering jew Plant,Rubber Plant,Ficus plant,ZZ Plant and many others that can be easily propagated by their cuttings in the rainy season.

Tips for early rooting of cuttings

- Apply rooting hormone on the tips of cuttings for early development of root on cuttings;

- Remove all the leaves from cutting leaving some at the top of the stem cutting for successful rooting ;

- Keep cuttings in shaded areas for at least two weeks until new shoots develop on the stem;

- Take small and thin cuttings for successful propagation.

The rainy or spring  season is best suitable for propagation of cuttings.

  1. So fun to nourish houseplants!

  2. Thank you for all the great information. Your flowers are simply beautiful.

  3. Great tips. Thanks for linking up. Why not check out what others are linking and loving about life this week.

  4. Thanks for the advice. I always enjoy spreading around my favorite plants! Nice bird and mountain shots, too.

    I'm so excited to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!! Thanks for linking.

  5. The greenery and colour is lovely. I like the dracena for indoors. Sadly most of my indoor plants don't last due to lack of light and lack of warmth in winter.

  6. I've propagated some of these plants, especially the pothos, which is so easy. It's time for me to start cuttings because our first frost date is only about 6 weeks away. So hard to believe winter is coming. Alana

  7. The last photo is so beautiful! Have a nice weekend.

  8. I have done that, propagated house plants with cuttings. At the moment I don't have house plants because of my cat Sissi. She eats them up and has problems with her stomach and needs constantly cortison. She is more important at the moment <3

  9. Hello, great house plants, it is nice to see them around the home. The Myna is a cool looking bird! Beautiful bloom and a gorgeous view! Great photos. Take care, enjoy your weekend!

  10. I love thinking of being back in the meadows too. Love that Myna bird!

  11. Hello. Interesting post. Beautiful photos. Thank you.

  12. Good information! Thank you for sharing your photos at

  13. LOVE the bird at your window! (I'm not good with houseplants...some, but not all).

    Thanks for taking time from your day to link in & share with us at IRBB this week!

  14. We have a pothos that I've had for 30 years. I take cuttings and start to grow new plants from it. It's so easy to do! And trust me, I'm a brown thumb, so if I can do it, anyone can.
