What are “Fresh Cuttings?”

Fresh cuttings are plant parts, typically stems or leaves, that have been recently cut from a parent plant and can be used to propagate new plants.

Gerenal Care Guide


Here is a general step-by-step guide on how to take and propagate fresh cuttings:

  1. Choose the parent plant: Select a healthy and mature plant that has not recently bloomed or produced new growth. This will ensure that the cutting has enough stored energy to produce roots.
  2. Gather the necessary tools: You will need a clean, sharp pair of pruning shears or scissors to make a clean cut on the stem.
  3. Prepare the cutting: Choose a stem that is about 4-6 inches long and has at least 2-3 nodes, which are the points where the leaves attach to the stem. Cut the stem at a 45-degree angle just below a node.
  4. Remove lower leaves: Remove the lower leaves from the cutting, leaving only 1-2 sets of leaves at the top of the stem. This will reduce the amount of moisture lost through the leaves and help the cutting focus its energy on producing roots.
  5. Apply rooting hormone: Dip the cut end of the stem in rooting hormone powder or gel, which will help stimulate root growth.
  6. Plant the cutting: Insert the cutting about 1-2 inches deep into a pot filled with moist soil or a rooting medium. Make sure the soil is moist but not waterlogged, and gently press the soil around the cutting to hold it in place.
  7. Water and cover the cutting: Water the cutting thoroughly and cover it with a plastic bag or dome to create a humid environment. This will help prevent moisture loss and encourage root growth.
  8. Monitor and care for the cutting: Keep the cutting in a warm, bright location but out of direct sunlight. Check the soil regularly to ensure it stays moist, and mist the cutting with water if necessary. After a few weeks, gently tug on the cutting to see if it has rooted. Once it has rooted, remove the plastic covering and gradually acclimate the cutting to its new environment.
