How to take leaf cuttings from Streptocarpus plants


2001 Dibleys Nurseries

Cuttings can be taken at any time of the year when the parent plant has a good supply of fresh young leaves. In practice this usually means Spring or Summer.

The leaf chosen should be taken from near the centre of the plant and be green and fresh-looking along its whole length, not yellow or dying back at the tip. Snap the leaf off at the base.
