How To Use a Propagation Station
Here are some general steps on how to use a propagation station based on the search results:
- Choose the plant you'd like to propagate and cut a section off it. This should ideally be a healthy stem cutting with at least one leaf node. The cutting is often taken at a 45-degree angle which increases the area available for roots to grow.
- Choose a container: You can use old glasses, jars, or test tubes to hold the . Some people also use specially designed stations with multiple slots for test tubes or small glass vases.
- Fill the container with water: Fill the container with tepid tap water or filtered water. Make sure that the leaf nodes at the low end of the stem are submerged below the waterline.
- Place the cuttings in the container: Place the cuttings in the water-filled container. Making sure that the leaf nodes are below the waterline. Be careful not to submerge the leaves as they can rot.
- Find a warm and bright spot: Put the container in a warm place with bright, indirect light.
- Check the progress: Check the progress of your cuttings each week, and change out the water if it looks cloudy or murky.
- Be patient: The process requires patience, and it may take several weeks or even months for the cuttings to root and grow.
