Propagation technique

She was so root bound but did not like getting repotted. Her thick stem turned to mush!
Question 1 should I try water or soil propagation?
Question 2 can I propagate the whole long trail? Or will that fail and I need to chop into ~4inch prop sections. Thank you #Kleinia

You can propigate any length #stemcutting but in my experience it's easier to propigate cuttings that have 2 nodes (where the leaves were) and aren't so long they can't stand up on their own in a pot.

You can seperate them, just remember that plants have a sense of up/down so don't forget which end is "down" (closer to the root) that's the end you'll want to prop.

Good luck! 🀞🏼 πŸ€πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ™‚

It takes a lot longer to see roots for my winter props, it's not impossible, just a little tricker than propigation in the spring or fall.

Propigation prefers temperate weather rather than extremes, so keeping it in 65-75 degrees and out of direct sun is ideal.

My outdoor leaf & stem props are not liking the dips down to 40's at night right now but I don't have space to move them all inside. πŸ˜•
I do better with jades in soil. Remove leaves so at least two nodes can be put in soil. Wait at least 24 hours before planting so they callus. Keep moist but not wet and I typically place under a grow light (often under another plant so it’s filtered). Good luck!
