Shark Tooth Fern Cuttings?
Are these big enough to cut and have 6 props? They are about 6” long. The two on the left are a few years old. On the right is from this summer.

Absolutely! I'm doing the same thing!! οΏΌ
You can even cut them smaller if you want. Some of mine got sunburned so I figured I'd start a new pot. οΏΌ
@sarahsalith Thank you! What I read said 6” and that seemed ridiculous lol I let the cuttings sit for 24 hours so they can callus and then put them in damp soil, right?
@Kace that's what I did. I have them in a fast-draining mix to encourage roots and so it doesn't get too soggy.

I think the 6" was so it would still look good instead of being a nub.
@sarahsalith That makes sense for a normal plant person. #teamnubs! I am trying to get enough so that I can put it back together in the spring and have a big full plant again. 🀞🏻 How big is your mother plant?
@sarahsalith Is this a root?
Yep!!!
Let me clarify- it's an aerial root. I get a lot on my Ric Rac cactus. οΏΌ
@sarahsalith Wow. I have never noticed one before. Thank you.
@sarahsalith @jcPlantProper @Kaleyeeaah Any idea what this is? I’m about to borrow some cuttings from the vet. πŸ˜‚
Nevermind. I think it’s sweet potato vine.
