My bedroom was already home to three lovely beings Stephan the Sansevieria Snake Plant, Orville the Orchid, and Bounty the Bird of Paradise. Now I'd like to introduce my newest love, Fabian the Fiddle Leaf Fig. He's currently being propagated. Im very curious to see him thrive.
This is my first time propagating a plant. After attending a Plant Care and Propagation Workshop in Baltimore yesterday I was pressed to put into practice what I learned. My plan is the keep a diary of the progress. I'll keep you posted!
I've read that plants are good air purifiers.
Once I brought the plant home from my local Home Depot I had to wipe it down good because the birds had really done a number on it. I took a rag with liquid dish detergent and warm water and gently wiped down each leaf. Then I took the water hose and sprayed it like a wild animal. Looks like new now. I purchased the plant for $19.99.
After cleaning the plant I took a pair of pruning shears and made a 45 degree cut a few inches below a node on the green part of the steam. 45 degrees helps to expose all the plants 'inner workings' to ensure your cutting has the best chance of living.
My first stop for beautiful pots will be Ikea.
