How to propagate Spatholobus suberectus

The commonly used propagation methods of Spatholobus suberectus include seeding method, plant division method and cutting method. Among them, the cutting method is relatively simple, only needing to cut a section of well-grown branches, inserted into soft and breathable flower soil, compaction of flower soil. Then keep it warm, water it and let it take root.

The sowing propagation of Spatholobus Suberectus

The sowing and reproduction of spatholobus suberectus is relatively simple but requires a certain period of time.

Spatholobus Suberectus fruiting period is in September. When the fruits start to mature, seeds should be collected in time. The harvested seeds are dried in the sun, sealed and stored for sowing and reproduction the following spring.

Spatholobus suberectus has the same specific sowing mode as other plants. However, it should be noted that Spatholobus suberectus needs to accelerate the germination before sowing, soak the seeds, and only then can it be sown when it is exposed to white.

Cutting propagation of Spatholobus Suberectus 

Sowing propagation of Spatholobus suberectus requires quite a long period from sowing to plant maturity. Therefore, a cutting method is adopted to propagate Spatholobus suberectus, which is convenient and simple.

Before cutting propagation, it is necessary to make preparations first, mainly to prepare cutting substrate and lotting. First, a seedbed should be prepared. The soil should be loose and fertile to the best. The soil should be disinfected to kill insect eggs or bacteria that may exist in the soil, and some basal fertilizers can be added to ensure adequate nutrients for the growth of Spatholobus Suberectus.

After you have prepared the seedbed, you must be ready for planting.Spatholobus Suberectus thick, healthy, and disease-free ligniated branches of 1 to 2 years old are selected for lotting. The length of about 15cm is cut, the leaves are removed and then trimmed, so that the roots of lotting can be cut into oblique shapes to distinguish the ends from the ends.

Put the lotting into the rooting agent to soak for easy rooting. After taking out and drying, insert the lotting into the soil and pour water into the seedbed once. It usually takes half a month to take root. When the looting of Spatholobus suberectus begins to grow, it can grow healthily with reasonable watering and fertilization.
