Sansevieria leaf cultivation plug, all parts of the leaves could be the seed

Cultivation of ornamental plants or reproduce a manner leaf plug is the easiest way, but will be applied to Sansevieria species. Leaf shapes are hard on Sansevieria allows for planting although not yet have a root. After the new roots will then grow new leaves again.

All parts of Sansevieria leaves can be plugged into seedlings, the upper, middle and bottom. 1 leaf 10 cm can be cut into 2 or 3 sections and planted each one, so from a leaf that was removed later will produce 2 or 3 new plants. The important thing is old and tough leaves. You can try it, if not successful there may be a wrong step. When it fails you are not experiencing any loss. Leaves that fail and die just take away from the plant, rather than buying. You will succeed at the next attempt. I've often tried this and succeeded.

The process to stick the leaves:
1. Prepare Sansevieria plants whose leaves are many, are targeting the leaves which will be released. Choose a leaf on the bottom so as not to damage the other leaf arrangement.

2. Prepare the planting medium in pots. Adjust the size of the pot to the size of the leaves that will be planted.

3. Remove the leaves that are being targeted in a way to break from the stems of plants. The most appropriate way is to draw leaves and twisted to one side or backwards and then pull out slowly to escape from the trunk. This method is easier and prevent damage to the plant stem. Do not pull straight toward the leaf as it will damage the leaves and stems of plants can break.

4. The base of the newly released leaves were still wet and had dried to avoid rotting. Put the pieces in the shade leaves are exposed to the wind and let stand for 3 days. Apply cleanser fungus and root stimulator on the base of the leaf. This will stimulate new roots to grow faster.

5. After 3 days and the base of the leaf is completely dry, plug it in the pot leaf that had been prepared. Flush with water. Put a shady place that gets the wind. Since the leaves do not have roots, flush with a little water 2 times in 1 week. Excessive water will make the leaves rot and die.

6. After 1 or 2 months, move the place that gets the spotlight of the sun. Flush once every 2 days. 1 to 2 months later a new leaf will appear on the right and left leaf. Flush once every 2 days as the treatment of adult Sansevieria. We've got a new Sansevieria seedlings. Good luck.
