You can also propagate this tiny plant (and follow the instructions in my post) and have it form roots in water, leaving the actually rooted part in with the mother plant (this will produce more leaves, too). But I would not cut it. Some leaves turning yellow now. If it’s an older monstera the yellowing is normal, but there should be healthy growth starting. Hole-lier leaves tend to be bigger, which have more surface area to grab sunlight – helping them as they grow vertically and closely against trees. Does my description make sense? I would love to see pics! Hi, Plus Monsteras do not mind being somewhat cozy in their pots. I *love* your advice–I live in South Africa, which loves its Monsteras, and my boyfriend’s got a huge one mysteriously growing up and around the stem of a giant jacaranda tree. The water should be warm and at room temperature. I wish I could attach a picture. Congrats! Putting the stem and node in water in a sunny spot will give it the best chance to root, and you should see 5-10 small roots before you plant. This allowed me (to attempt) to make him the shape I wanted. Do Monsteraâs not like to go into larger pots at first or is that just what you decided?? Cutting, shaping, any kind of trimming plants in any fashion is terrifying. I have 2 roots that are outside the plant about 1 1/2â long what should I do with them? Hi Julie! Thank you for asking and sharing! Thanks for the post! Hi Laurie! Thank you. Hi Tyler, I do specify that air layering needs to be done on the plant itself until roots form, but I appreciate your feedback! The only way (I believe) they’ll get bushier is with more stems, and more stems are produced by ideal conditions such as bright light and high humidity, and rotating them weekly – that encourages even growth all round. However, you have to deal with the inconvenience of repotting, which may slow down growth. Thank you. Can i cut thst leaf snd just have the roots with a base stump? ð. I have had mine for days and it’s not happy, brown leaves and drooping. Silly me filled the whole thing up with dirt to put my baby in. The water turns brown after 1 or 2 days, I canât keep up with changing it. If you do decide to prune, wait until it gets a tad warmer, like 70 degrees or so, since he’ll be able to recover better. You may also use hormones to stimulate faster rooting on any other season. This spring I will propagate from a 40 year old Monstera that has been growing in my living room, having regrown 20 years ago after being cut down to the soil level. Congrats – that’s a healthy clipping! 1). Will it eventually bring new leaves where you cut it? I have both of mine at work and they both get a lot of indirect bright light from a south facing window. I suggest not propagating unless you have multiple steams that have multiple leaves, not waiting until you have a few stems may result in killing the plant. Thank you! I have a question about the Monstera that I can’t find anywhere on the internet. Hi Julia! Your monsteras sound amazing. I want to use your picture under “Snip the Stem” for my gardening column for the Jacksonville Times-Union paper. Hi, I’m sitting here in tears, drowning my guilt with a glass of wine after cutting “Groot” while my mom continues to laugh at me for being a wimp. Would you mind to help me to propagated them? Hope that helps! can I propagate from a stem and node or do I need a leaf? Monstera may be propagated by seed, stem cuttings, suckers, and tissue culture. Leaves turning yellow isn’t uncommon in Monsteras, but if the stems are yellowing you make be overwatering or it may not be happy. I have a node that I put and water and it now has roots. Put it straight into dirt with an air root and water the thing. This may put out some roots but will never grow a new vine. If I’m picturing how your cutting looks (feel free to post a pic) a node should pop up and develop. Also, is it best to propagate this in water, or just plant it straight away? It did not have a node. Here's is my journey... Either way you should be able to save the pieces you have. By February, you should be able to replant, just be sure the cutting is in a warm place with lots of humidity (you may need humidifier as winter is drying). Try rooting in water instead. I have just started trying this in water and the leaves are turning yellow on some. Just make sure to pick a nice healthy chunk. Thanks for any advice! We are passionate about plants, and we like sharing our journey plus everything we learn about our leafy friends. Hey, I have a monstera that has a stem but no leaf.

However, to achieve the best results, here is a detailed procedure on propagating the Swiss cheese plant using stem cutting. grew some chunky white roots too. However, the seedlings are extremely slow to develop. Hi, thanks for a great article! I am a little confused about what part(s) to submerge as someone I believe said to not submerge the aerial root so I am a bit confused and would be super sad if I messed her up… Would you recommend bottled or distilled water? I actually just wrote a blog post about this! I may be confused by your question – so feel free to shoot me a DM on Instagram with a pic – and I should be able to help better. Both produce good results with little chances of failure. ð, Hi!! One stem and leaf? It has roots that anchor the base in the ground (or wherever the seed germinated), but the as it grows, it will send out what are called "air roots" from along the stem. Any suggestions will help greatly. It will continue to grow and might look funny for a while, but it will fill out eventually. We just acquired a set of corten steel monstera leaves as a garden sculpture. Can you give some more instructions about potting? I added 4 in a large pot and 1 in a 6 in pot. Or did it just dry up? I am super worried. Too-large pots are very dangerous, leading to over-watering and general unpleasantness since Monsteras prefer to have many of their root aerial, not smothered under soil. Is there any chance you can dig up the root? Propagating a Monstera: Since my monstera is pretty mature and very healthy, I have several options when it comes to selecting cuttings to propagate. Propagating Monstera Deliciosa in the soil is a bit tricky because you do not see the roots emerging and cannot remove the stem or dig into the soil to monitor progress. Thanks so much for your informative post! It is sooooo beautiful and I don’t want it to die. Submerging in water can work but the risk of the stems getting moldy is higher when there are no leaves, so sphagnum is probably best. If there is node found, does propogating with ariel roots work? The aerial root in the water hasn’t made new roots but it’s still growing. As they mature I found they grow much quicker. You can do single node cuttings with one leaf. When I did propagating in the past, sometimes the cutting ends up moldy or shrivels – resulting in so many bad emotions. You can just place into soil or you can trim the roots and place it into water. I would still let the plant sit in water another month or so, and you want to be sure it’s not near any drafty windows or cold temperatures, which may actually be the cause of the leaves coloring. Looking at Monty it looks like there’s a lot of different ‘stems’ in the same pot. Can I cut it below the stem and with the long aerial root? The Variegated Monstera Deliciosa is the perfect plant for propagation as it is fairly easy to do so. So, just a leaf and stem probably wonât work out. That makes me so nervous. What do I do? If it’s the water, I would suggest using rainwater and you should see an improvement. This is also the only way to ensure that you are getting a perfect clone of your plant that is variegated. Thank you so much! I will give baby Groot to a friend if all goes well. Hi Angel! These were the steps I took to ensure Monty Jr. would grow up big and strong: Look your monstera over and find the node. Hi! The node is where the leaf and petiole attach to the vine.

We have several monsteras around our garden but your advice will be useful should we need more. I would definitely repot. Filling lightly and not pressing the soil down, I put Monty Jr in his new home. To answer your question, Tyler, I think you’ll be ok. A new leaf looks like a little fold coming from the stem, and that’s a good sign. It has no roots. If it has many roots that’s a sure sign! When do you add fertiliser and repotting it? After a week a lot of white spots appeared on the remaining roots. My cat chewed on a leaf of my monstera once.. and she hasnât chewed on another plant in th house since.. and I am an avid aroid lover and am always on the hunt for plants to add to my collection, so I have aroids absolutely everywhere in my apartment. Otherwise you should be fine cutting it, as long as you take a piece/stem that has a few nodes as well. If your cat shows any interest in playing with or chewing it, you need to put it up higher. I recently planted a well-rooted leaf (approx 2 months ago). Not sure if you would have as much luck just pitting them in soil. Hi Barbara! The stem in a glass of water should be placed in a brightly lit spot that will stimulate the emergence of new shoots. Iâll def give it a go now. Moved plant thinking maybe it got a hot shot of sun, now omg. Did that stem grow back? Hi Samantha, all hope may not be lost!

Hi there, thank you for this amazing information!! Change the water every three to four days to ensure a sufficient supply of nutrients and protect the roots from rotting. My another cutting Monstera I put in water last month was died after a week and I do not know why even he had an air root, I put in a little One Month Update! My own variegated plant that I have came from this type of cutting. I’d give him a month or so in water, then you should be able to plant him in soil (be sure to use a high quality garden soil). Is there any reason not to put the smaller in the same pot? Hi Sarah, This can happen if the cutting was from an older monstera or if the water it’s in is heavily chlorinated. Hi there.

I actually got directions from tris article a few months ago in order to propagate my monstera. Hi Bridget, Keep waiting. For those asking about toxicity with pets – aroids are much less toxic than many websites have led people to believe.. the calcium occalate crystals in monstera and other aroids can indeed cause discomfort in the mouth of animals/humans and could possibly make them throw up if they ate/digested a significant amount but they would have to actually consume almost an entire plant, not just chew on it, for it to cause any serious problems.. and like I said before, the crystals cause discomfort in the mouth and do not taste good, so your pet would have to be massochistic to continue munching on a plant that wasnât tastey and made their mouth hurt. You can plant it any day at this point. A sharp knife or scalpel ensures that the branch is not bruised or infected during cutting. or I should go above or below the previously cut stem (stem with node) ? Is a piece of wood good enough, or should it be a moss totem? Hiya, The leaves will be small for a bit until the cutting becomes established.
