Step by step how to propagate cebu blue
- Take a cutting
Take a cutting from the top of the plant, and cut under the node, You can take a whole branch to take multiple cuttings.
- Trim the larger branches down into separate cuttings
Trim the cuttings so you have one node and one leaf for each cutting.
- Leave the cuttings for a few hours
Put the cuttings aside so the wounds heal over, this will make the chances of rot much lower.
- Put the cuttings in water
Put the cuttings in water for one or two months, until they have developed a good root system. Keep the water topped up, and change the water if it goes cloudy.
- Move the cuttings to soil or leca.
Cebu blue do well in both soil and leca. Once they have developed roots you can move the plant and plant it up in soil or leca to live ongoing.
- Keep it humid
You want to keep the plant humid for another month or so as the plants root into the soil or leca. Then you can treat it as a normal plant.
