Growing Up And Transplanting Huge FLF – If you’ve been following for a while, you’ll know that one of my proudest moments was growing up and then transplanting our huge FLF to our back patio.

She really is a beauty, but recently she has had a few ups and downs and I felt like she was getting too big so I finally wanted to propagate some of her leaves.

This process basically involves taking a section of plant and rooting it so that it creates a whole new plant. Magic! I wanted to make a spread wall so that I could do some water spreading so I started to assemble one on the back deck. Read on to find out more.

Growing Up And Transplanting Huge FLF: What You Need

  • Glass or plastic jars
  • Cable
  • Picture hangers
  • Nails (smaller than the hole on the hanger) and a hammer
  • Gardening scissors

How? ‘Or’ What

  1. The first thing I did was cut off a section of my large violin sheet at the end. It is important not to cut too much, so as not to shock the plant, so stick to less than 30% of the plant.
  2. I then cut this section into smaller parts, leaving a leaf and branch section on each part.
  3. I dipped each section into the rooting hormone.
  4. Then I set about doing the spread wall. I took each jar and wrapped the top edge in wire so that there was a secure collar to hang on to.
  5. To this I attached a hanger by bending the end over the wire.
  6. I hammered a nail into the wall and then inserted the nail into the hole in the hanger so that the pot hung on the wall.
  7. I then filled each one with water.
  8. Finally, I put the stems and branches in the water.

It’s important to note that you can grow a whole tree if you use a branch, rather than trying to propagate a single leaf.

A leaf will grow roots but cannot become a plant. It’s been about 6 weeks and I started noticing roots! The weather has been colder and it has taken a while, but I have noticed that once they start to grow they seem to grow quite quickly.
