Garlic cuttings in 4 steps
Step 1: Vase cleaning
A garlic cutting is probably the easiest thing you can do.
Start by disinfecting the glass or vase in which you would like the cuttings to grow.
You can use pure alcohol or disinfectant to disinfect the cuttings.
Step 2: Add some water and garlic
In the cleaned glass you can now add a layer of water. Put the glass on a windowsill and put the garlic clove in it.
Attention! It is important to leave the garlic skin around the clove. In this way the cuttings not only grow faster, but are also more successful.
Step 3: Pot it!
After about one week you will see that carrots develop from the garlic clove.
Change the water every week so that no algae is formed.
As soon as the roots are at least 15 centimeters you can repot the cuttings. Choose a flowerpot with fresh soil so that the cutting has enough energy to root.
Step 4: Taking care of the cutting
A garlic can grow on a fairly light spot. Too much direct sunlight will not do it any good, but with enough indirect sunlight you will see that the cutting grows faster than in the water.
