How to Propogate Global Green Plant the Right Way

Updated: April 23, 2022

The Global Green Plant (Epipremnum aureum) is a popular houseplant known for its ability to purify the air and its low maintenance requirements. It’s also a great plant for beginners to propagate, as it’s easy to propagate through stem cuttings. In this article, we’ll cover how to propagate the Global Green Plant the right way.

Materials Needed

Before you get started, you’ll need a few materials:

  • A healthy Global Green Plant
  • Pruning shears or sharp scissors
  • Rooting hormone (optional)
  • A small pot with drainage holes
  • Potting soil
  • Water

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Choose a healthy stem to propagate. Look for a stem that has at least two leaves and nodes.
  2. Using pruning shears or sharp scissors, make a clean cut just below a node.
  3. If using rooting hormone, dip the cut end of the stem into the powder and shake off any excess.
  4. Fill a small pot with well-draining potting soil.
  5. Make a hole in the soil with your finger or a pencil.
  6. Insert the stem cutting into the hole and gently press the soil around it.
  7. Water the cutting thoroughly and place the pot in a warm, bright spot with indirect sunlight.
  8. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and avoid overwatering.

Tips for Success

  • Choose a healthy stem with at least two leaves and nodes.
  • Use sharp scissors or pruning shears to make a clean cut just below a node.
  • Consider using rooting hormone to encourage root growth.
  • Use well-draining potting soil and avoid overwatering.


How long does it take for the cutting to root?

It usually takes 2-4 weeks for the cutting to root, but it can take longer depending on the conditions.

How often should I water the cutting?

Water the cutting when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as this can cause root rot.

How do I know if the cutting has rooted?

You’ll know the cutting has rooted when you see new growth and roots emerging from the soil.

Can I propagate a Global Green Plant from a leaf cutting?

While it’s possible to propagate a Global Green Plant from a leaf cutting, it’s not recommended as it’s less likely to be successful than stem cuttings.

How often should I fertilize my propagated plant?

Wait until the plant has established itself in its new pot before fertilizing. Then, fertilize every 2-4 weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer.

In conclusion, propagating a Global Green Plant is an easy and rewarding way to expand your plant collection or share plants with friends. By following these simple steps and tips, you’ll be able to successfully propagate your Global Green Plant and enjoy its air-purifying benefits in no time!
