2. Selection of substrates

Asian Virginsbower generally prefers fertile, well-drained substrates. A 3:1 or 2:1 mixture of peat and perlite can be used. Water thoroughly before cutting.

3. Before cutting propagation

The cuttings can be rooting soaked for half an hour. Punch the hole with the stick, insert the cuttings and press them down by hand. Insert 2-3 cm or leave the node on top. After inserting, pour water thoroughly.

4. Avoid the sun

Attention should not be placed in the strong light, but there should be astigmatism, ventilation is better. In addition to maintaining humidity, the temperature is best controlled at 20 to 30℃. Moisturize with a plastic bag. Generally, 15 days or so, the incision will expand, begin to have signs of rooting, above the bud will also take out long leaves, a month or so will be able to take root.
