Propagate Pink Princess Philodendron Cuttings (Part 2)
Updated: Feb 5, 2022
Want to learn how to propagate Philodendron Pink Princess without killing your precious plant? It is easier than you think, and I will teach you how to air layer which is a fast and easy way to make Pink Princess Philodendron cuttings with a healthy root system!
This video will show you how to look for nodes on a plant. These node hold one or more leaves and aerial roots. (You need at least one node to make a successful cutting.)
How to Propagate using Air Layering
Air layering is simple. You need damp sphagnum moss to wrap around the nodes of the plant. The moisture from the damp moss will activate the nodes to start growing aerial roots.
1) Damp sphagnum moss ( I like the New Zealand Sphagnum Moss for reptile pets because it is clean and doesn't have extra additives)
2) Plastic wrap
Step 1: Wrap the nodes on the stem using the damp moss.
Step 2: Cover the entire thing with a plastic wrap to retain the moisture.
Step 4: Mist the moss every 2-3 days to make sure the moss is still damp. Aerial roots need moisture to grow. You will see results within 2 weeks!
Step 5: Check on the growth of the aerial roots. If the roots are more than 2 inches then its ready to be cut and potted in soil.
