How to take leaf cuttings from Streptocarpus plants

Method 1


Insert the base of the leaf about 2.5 cm (1 in.) deep into the compost in a small pot 8cm (3 in.) in diameter, and water thoroughly.

Use either a proprietary compost specially produced for cuttings or a peat-based compost mixed in equal proportions with medium grade vermiculite.

After watering thoroughly, place the pot in a propagating case. Alternatively place a polythene bag over the pot. Use some sticks to hold the bag clear of the leaf cutting.
