Step by step instructions to propagate a Rhapidophora Tetrasperma in water

- Put the cuttings aside for a couple of hours
The open wounds need to be sealed before putting it in water so you don’t get rot.
- Put the cuttings in water for a month
They should start to root in a few days, they grow and root quickly. In a month the roots should be well established.
- Move the cuttings to soil
Once the roots have grown well you can plant the cutting up into a soil mix.
