Monstera adansonii propagation

Monstera Adansonii or Philodendron Swiss Cheese plant is one of the easiest plant to propagate. You can snip off a section with one or two node either put the cuttings directly to the soil or propagate the cuttings in water.

My best way to propagate Monstera Adansonii is to put the cuttings in water. Actually, I tried both but for me, the most successful one is rooted in water then transfer to the soil and put in a cooler area to grow.

I chosed to snip off in individual node, this is my fifth times propagating Monstera Adansonii and so far, this is also the fastest batch to roots. Well, there are 3 bottles full of 1 node cuttings in water but for some reason only one bottle rooted the cuttings within 3 weeks. Surprisingly!

The pictures posted was the result of my water propagation after 3 weeks. I have several cuttings propagated at the same time, yet the rest of the cuttings in the other bottle placed in other location shows no roots. Basically, in my own understanding, the plant have their own will to grow.

As we can see on the pictures, these are ready to transplant. I will make an update how she grow after a week of transplanting them to the soil.

By the way, the recommendation is at least 2 nodes from the expert it is my own choice to snip one node to propagate because I am a hard-headed lolz, I just want to experiment in my own way honestly, so far I don’t have any problem. If you have rooting hormone you can use that too to root. What I do, I always check the water every day, when the water is clear, you’re good to go don’t disturb them, if the water is not clear change the water right away and wash the cuttings, it is a sign of disease. Continue to do so until you will see the roots. Do not put in direct sunlight. Just to let you know, I am not an expert here, I just want to do experimentation. So please follow the expert.

Picture will be posted soon!
