The cutting bed must be prepared before cutting. according to the number of branches to be cut, containers of different caliber are used.

The cutting methods in Milan are generally divided into two kinds, one is the tender branch of the current year, and the other is the old stem of the previous year. These two methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. If you choose the branches born in the same year, the survival rate is a little higher.

Steps and methods:

In fact, the cutting method is very simple, just follow the steps below.

First of all, insert the branches into the previously prepared soil and pour enough water.

Then put the flowerpot into a plastic bucket, put a brick at the bottom of the bucket, and then add a small amount of water.

Then cover the barrel mouth with glass and open the lid for 3 to 5 days to ventilate.

Maintenance after cutting:

After cutting, keep the plant in a cool place, control the temperature at 25-28 ℃, and often spray water to the leaves to increase the humidity of the surrounding environment and promote its growth.

The cutting cycle in Milan is relatively long, and it takes 50 to 60 days to succeed. If the branches do not wilt and the leaves do not turn yellow during this period, it shows that the base of the branches has fully healed, and after a period of time, buds will grow between the leaves and stems, which means that they have taken root.


The method of cutting propagation is mainly carried out from June to August, and the sturdy branches that have been lignified in the same year can be cut out for cuttings, about 10 cm in length, leaving 2 or 3 leaflets at the top, cut off the leaves below, and insert them into a bed with peat as the matrix or sand and perlite as the matrix, about 4 cm, then pour water through and seal the basin mouth with plastic film to keep warm and wet.

Keep the indoor temperature at about 28 degrees Celsius, humidity at about 95%, and keep the bed moist. It will take about 2 months to take root and transplant. If the cuttings are soaked in 500ppm acetic acid solution for about 20 hours before insertion, and then cleaned and then cut, the cuttings can take root early.
