🌱 Propagation

Common Grape Vine can be propagated by the leaf method. To propagate:

  • Remove a leaf by gently twisting until it pops off.
  • To get the leaf to root, you can either:
    • Place the leaf in water until roots emerge and are ~2” long and then transplant into well-draining soil, or
    • Place the leaf directly into well-draining soil

🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.
