I love having plants around the house, especially in winter. I love buying them in flower shops, markets or in bigger plant stores and I love taking care of them over the weekend. It’s almost a meditation for me. I often shop for new species of plants that I don’t have yet, but I never buy the same one unless it dies, which happens sometimes especially while I travel.
With every plant I have, I try to propagate and make a little plant. Sometimes it works out and often it doesn’t. Some plants are so easy to propagate (like a Phillea) and some just won’t work in my case. I’ve had some success with the Golden Pothos plant in the pictures so I wanted to share with you how I did it. There are these brown notes on the green stem of the plant, which you can see well in the second picture I took. Cut a piece of plant right below the note with a sharp scissors and place the cutting in water. The roots for the new plant will grow out of the note and then you can plant it in a small pot. Make sure the cutting has enough sunlight and refresh the water often.
The plant in the bigger pot is a cutting from the other one. I tried potting it in a bigger pot and it has been growing steadily. I hope it will get bigger than the other one so I can place it on a high bookshelf with the leaves falling down.
