Sansevieria how to propagate? This is a plant that we will all have at home sooner or later.
I went to steal it from my grandmother’s house. He really had giants. Huge. In a vase at least 30 seedlings per species.
So I took them and brought them home to me. Ignore that I would have done a thousand experiments.
But here I have to make a note. It is not true that it is a simple plant to maintain. Unfortunately not all Sansevierias are fine anywhere.
Having said that we move on to reproduction. Sansevieria how to propagate
SANSEVERIA HOW TO PROPAGATE
I made it after a thousand attempts. I also discovered how to reproduce this plant.
First of all I advise you not to cut the leaf into many small pieces. But one piece.
I tried with 3 different chopped leaves. All at a height of 5 or 10cm. I could not grow anything from these.
Secondly, I recommend it for an aesthetic factor.
Let us remember to always use clean scissors. To avoid proliferation of fungi and bacteria.
We then continue by inserting the leaf into a container. You choose the size. There is no real measure.
Very important: the container must be full of expanded clay.
The expanded clay should be moistened once a day.
However, moistening does not mean submerging water. We simply spray a little water on the clay and not on the leaf.
You must have a lot of patience because it could take months to make the first roots.
It took me about 3 weeks.
One tip I found on the internet was cutting. It seems that the clear cuts do not favor the growth of roots. Make a triangle cut.
So, cut to cut, let’s try it.
Let’s move on to another plant. Sansevieria cylindrical how to propagate?
This is easier because you can practically reproduce it anywhere. In water, directly in the damp earth, with the above method. It is impossible not to reproduce it I dare say.
Of this we can really indulge ourselves. Cut it into several 5 or 10cm pieces. Or keep it whole.
Common factor with the previous one: it takes so long to emit roots. But really a lot. I also took 6 months with some seedlings.
So don’t lose hope. You just have to be patient with this plant.
I hope I have been helpful with these little tips.
