Ceropegia Woodii Rooting Experiment (Heart vs. Heart) 🪴🌿☘
How are you? I hope you are well and enjoying yourself. I'm a little depressed these days. Unfortunate events have happened to me one after another in the past days, but luckily I got over it with little things. I'm fine now everything is as it should be 😊
I miss this place so much when I'm away from Hive. After all, this has become a place where I have troubled and poured out my heart, and sometimes shared my experiences. I will do so today. I tried something and I want to share it with you.
I had a dying Ceropegia Woodii flower in my hand. We call this in my country (Heart Against Heart Flower). I think it's because the leaves have the shape of a heart. I got it this summer but it hasn't improved.
I also rolled up my sleeves to save this plant. My plant has only one branch left and it was around 30cm. First I cut them 2 cm apart around the leaves with scissors. I didn't touch the root while doing this. It stands in the middle of the flower pot.
I got a total of 11 pieces. If I am successful in this application, I will have a bushy Ceropegia Woodii plant. I planted each piece I cut by burying its stems in the ground. I buried only the stems on both sides with the leaves on top.
I planted each piece and sprayed them with water to give life water. I moistened the soil well.
To give my plant a greenhouse effect, I put my pot in a thin bag and tied it well. I made tiny holes to let air through. I'll let it stay that way for a while. This is a method that speeds up rooting. I do not know what the results will be as I have not tried this method on this plant before. Now all that's left is to wait patiently for the developments.
While I was doing these, my little curious assistant accompanied me. She watched with interest what I planted in the pot. She loves to eat very much. I think she thought I prepared something special for her 😀 Who knows, maybe she wanted to check if I did the right thing. Cats are never easy-to-understand animals. It's hard to know what they're aiming for 🙊
I hope this experience will be successful because I love Ceropegia Woodii plant very much. Actually, my priority is especially the hanging and creeping types of plants. They add a forest effect and a botanical feel to the home environment.
Have you reproduced Ceropegia Woodii before? I would be very happy if you share your experiences with me. If you think I made a mistake somewhere, do not hesitate to let me know in the comments 🥰
Take care until we meet again.
By the way, I shared it on this community, but I hope it wasn't wrong. I chose this place because it is about plants. If this choice is wrong, you can warn me.
