Philodendron Burle Marx Propagation In Soil
Welcome to our guide to philodendron burle marx propagation in soil. This is the least hassle method if you are growing the plants in soil as you are putting them in their final medium from the start. We cover all you need to know.
Tip: we recommend Etsy for buying plants. Look for the best rated seller you can, and try to buy as close to your home as possible so the plant does not travel too far.
To propagate philodendron Burle Marx in soil, follow these steps:
Take a cutting from one leaf and cut it back to the node, with as much space around the node as you can.
Wait half a day or more so the cutting is healed over. This is really important as you can get rot from soil propagations, so you want the wound to be sealed.

Put the cutting in a pot of soil, and firm it in.
Keep it moist and humid. I do this by using a plastic pot that does not have drainage holes but has clay pebbles (or leca at the bottom). This means that excess water can drain off into the leca, and when the soil dries out it will wick up and use the water from the leca.
Tip: you can buy LECA or clay pebbles using this Amazon affiliate link (it helps our site out if you buy from this link, at no extra cost to you, thanks!).
Keep it warm, humid and well lit until it roots. You can put a plastic bag over the plant and pot to increase humidity, but leave a few holes so air can move, as still air can lead to mold. Once it starts putting out new leaves you can remove the bag and treat it as a juvenile plant.
Here’s what the roots look like after a few months in soil:
