Propagate plants from tip cuttings

In order to propagate plants from cuttings, you will need the following: plants that can grow from clippings, a container, potting soil, water, and a rooting hormone. You should water the plant the day before you plan to take clipping. You will need to make sure that the clippings are healthy. You should not clip damaged or sickly clippings. Cut them below the nodes. Make about 20 cuttings. Dip the tips of the cuttings in the rooting hormone. Then, place the cutting in the soil, simply sticking the tips in. It will take, approximately, 3 to 6 weeks for the plants to root. Label and date your cuttings. Cover them. You'll need to watch them and make sure that too much humidity doesn't collect.
