Propagating Dieffenbachia's in 4 steps

1. Het mes schoonmaken

Je stekt een Dieffenbachia door een stam los te snijden. Wij raden aan om een scherp mes te gebruiken en deze van te voren goed schoon te maken.

Als je het mes niet schoonmaakt kunnen bacteriën onnodig verspreid worden naar de moederplant en stekken. Je kunt het beste ontsmettingsmiddel of pure alcohol gebruiken om het mes schoon te maken.

2. Loosening stitches

The cuttings of the Dieffenbachia originate from the multiple trunks that grow in the air.

Take the clean knife and cut a cutting of at least 10 cm. With larger plants it is better to remove a cutting that is larger.

Since you are busy right now you can also choose to make several cuttings immediately.

3. Cuttings in soil or water

The handy thing about the Dieffenbachia is that the plant can be cut in two ways. The cuttings grow in water as well as in soil. Both methods work, so the choice is yours!

When taking cuttings in water, it is important to remove the lower leaves.

With cuttings in soil it is best to attach a bag around the leaf and the flowerpot. This ensures better humidity.

4. Repotting

As soon as the cuttings are about 5 to 10 centimetres long in water you can repot them. Place the cuttings in fresh potting soil and keep the soil a little wetter than normal for the first weeks.

With cuttings in soil you can remove the greenhouse after about one month. In any case, keep it moist for the first period.
