Cutting propagation is the most commonly used method of propagation for chandelier plants, preferably in summer. Choose the thick and full top stem, cut 10-12 cm long. After the cut is slightly dry, insert it into the sand bed, take root in about 7-10 days, and transplant to the pot when the root is 2-3 cm long. You can also insert the leaves, cut the single leaves, cut the mouth and dry them, and insert them into the sand bowl diagonally, and the new roots will grow about 10 days after insertion. After 30 days, small plants will grow from the leaf base.
The main method of propagation in Chandelier plants is cutting propagation. Cutting propagation time to summer is the best. If the conditions are appropriate (there are greenhouses), cutting propagation of chandelier plants can be carried out throughout the year.
When we carry out cutting propagation of chandelier plant, we need to choose the top stem of thick and substantial, cut with scissors 10-12 cm long, put in the place with cool and ventilated air, let cut dry. When the cut is a little dry, it can be inserted into the soil. It will take about a week to root.When the roots are about 2-3 centimeters long, transplant them into a pot.
The chandelier plant leaf insertion propagation method is much the same way as a cutting propagation, by cutting off the vigorous leaves, which are then thickened. Cut the single leaf, and put the cut leaves in a cool and ventilated place to dry. After the cut is dried, insert them into the sand bowl diagonally. It takes about 10-30 days for leaf insertion to grow from long roots to new plants, which is a long time and the survival rate is lower.
