“I love projects! Which plant from your selection is easy for a beginner to propagate?” —Hannah, Des Moines

We love a good project over here, so we totally understand your desire to add something fun to your to-do list this summer.

What’s better than having one awesome plant? Having multiple, of course. While propagation may seem intimidating, it’s actually a super simple task that even beginners can master.

An easy plant to start with is the Marble Pothos. Thanks to how many leaves these often have, snipping a few stems to use as yours cuttings won't make it look bare at all. Plus, these plants are generally filled with nodes (which are the key to a successful propagation!)

Need some assistance on how to nail this process? You canfollow our helpful steps. If you have any questions along the way, don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know. We’re confident you’ve got this, but we have your back just in case!
