Get crazy propagating!

Propagating from stem cuttings is a straightforward, cheap and oh-so-satisfying way to grow your own plants - learn how here!

For those of us who live in apartments, having your own garden can feel like it will only ever be a dream.
As well as enjoying public greenspaces in the city, opportunities abound for surrounding oneself with nature through indoor plants. And it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

​Through a little bit of experimentation and willingness for some trial and error, you can propagate plants from cuttings in your home.
In this video I show you how my love for plants began as well as teach you one simple method for propagation by stem cutting in water.
It might not work every time, but if you’re looking for a cheap and easy way to practice growing indoor plants, it’s a great way to get started. Give it a go and see your cuttings grow roots in front of your very eyes!
