โ€ข Youโ€™ve seen it beforeโ€ฆ aroid plants suddenly take off, become confined in their pot, and before you know it, the bottom half of the plant features a leafless stem and long nodes. If left unattended, the plant can become leggy and eventually die.

โ€ข You can actually just cut the plant below some healthy nodes and directly repot that cutting into a slightly larger container with drainage. You can use rooting powered if the nodes are smaller.
โ€ข If you have multiple small cuttings, you can even combine them into one pot for a fuller look.
โ€ข We always recommend using a rich potting soil and feel free to sprinkle with a granular fertilizer like Osmocote. Water afterward.

โ€ข It will take a few weeks for the cuttings to take root, but trust us when we say plants want to live. Theyโ€™ll will work hard to stay happy and healthy, just make sure to water!

โ€ข Above is exactly what we did with this Philodendron Silver Sword. The three stems came from one plant and are now rooted in their new home!
