Then, I usually rub a bit of rooting hormone onto this bare spot to encourage root development.
Next, wrap the section with some moist sphagnum moss and pack it around slightly so it’s about 7-10cm thick. Then loosely wrap that area with plastic, securing it in place with ties or tape.
You can use plastic such as cling film or a cut up sandwich bag when propagating houseplants, but for outdoor plants that take a while to root it’s ideal to use black plastic instead.
Leave the wrapping in place and eventually you will start to see roots through the plastic or be able to feel that the moss is filling with roots. Then, you can cut below the moss section, unwrap the plastic and pot it up individually as a new houseplant.
When the new plant is in its new pot, keep it in a spot with bright but indirect light and well-watered. Within a few weeks the new plant should be well-established and should be ready to move into its new spot in your home.
