Easy to Grow Plants From Stem Cuttings During Monsoon

Monsoon rains are on their ascension. It is time to start some worthy planting rituals – cutting the existing stem, it’s grafting, and rooting. While it’s common knowledge that every plant in the garden area can exhibit magic during rain, easy-to-grow plants start rooting faster. Consequently, they eventually bloom in a way that truly appears supernatural.

Plantation Methods or Propagation of Easy to Grow Plants:

Among these 7 methods, we can choose the best and easy to propagate plantation procedure, depending on plant characteristics.

1. Seed Propagation:

For seed germination, take some healthy seeds of a plant you want to grow.

  1. Directly put them into fertile and moist soil.
  2. Start by placing these seeds in moist tissue paper, and promptly position this tissue within a plastic bag. After the seedlings germinate, proceed by transferring them into prepared planting soil.

2. Plant Cuttings:

You can grow the whole plant by using any of the three vegetative parts of a plant (you want to grow).

Growth of Stem Cuttings

Growth of Stem Cuttings

1: Stem Cuttings:

Take a 3 to 6′ long part of a parent plant’s soft or hard stem when the plant is not fully bloomed, subsequently ensuring the best chances for successful propagation. These cuttings should be taken by a sharp knife over a 45-degree angle and must have one or more nodes. Trim all the leaves and plant these cuttings into fertile soil.

2: Leaf Cuttings Low-Maintenance Plants:

Some of the plants (mostly succulent plants) or indoor plants tend to grow from leaves. Just take a leaf from the plant with almost 1.5′ of the petiole. Insert that leaf into the soil from the petiole side.

3: Root Cuttings of Simple-to-Cultivate Plants :

Some of the plants can grow from root cuttings. Take almost 5 to 6 root cuttings, each 2 to 6′ long, from the plant. Hold the proximal end and make a straight cut on it. Now make a partial cut on its distal end on each cutting. Ties all of these cuttings with the same sides. After storing them for 3 weeks in moist soil, you can then place them in your garden to allow them to grow.

3. Division:

This technique is particularly well-suited for perennial plants, those that can live for more than two years. For division, dig some part of your plant (including roots) and move it into prepared soil.

4. Layering of Easy to Grow Plants:

In this process, the bend of a branch is covered with soil. However, when covered in moist and fertile soil, the bent stem developed its own root system and let the stem grow as a whole plant.

5. Grafting:

To commence the grafting process, start by taking a plant cutting. Afterward, you can connect it to the stem of another plant. This joint must be placed carefully.

6: Budding:

In this process, simply take a bud from the parent plant and place it in the soil. Alternatively, you can position it on another plant. Make a cut, so the bud can fit and join seamlessly.

7: Tissue Culture:

This is the most advanced technique usually used in labs and on large farms. A controlled media is developed to keep just a few parent plant tissues and let them grow as a whole plant.
