When it comes to plants, I’m a firm believer that the best way to add new plants to your space is to propagate plants from the plants you already have. There are many different ways to propagate- but first let’s briefly talk about what propagate really means.
“Propagate”- To spread, pass along, multiply as a process of natural reproduction.
In layman’s terms, you’re taking one plant and creating one or more plants from the original mother plant. Most plants can be propagated and a lot of your common houseplants are extremely easy to propagate. Now like I said before, there are quite a few ways to propagate. I prefer to water propagate. I think it’s because I love seeing the growth of the root system. It’s just magical to me. The plants shown above are plants I’m currently propagating- Sansevieria, Philodendron and a Monstera. Let’s take a closer look at how I am doing this method.
I think the best thing I like about propagating is the giving. I love to give people plants because let’s face it, I have A LOT of plants!!! It brings me joy to find a fellow plant lover and give them a plant from my mother plant and to know that it’s now adorning their spaces. If you get the opportunity to gift a plant to someone, I highly suggest you do. Spreading love and joy of a plant to other is the best way to sustainably live.
Have you gifted a plant that you’ve propagated?? Let me know in the comments below.
until next time,
