    How to grow morpankhi plant from cutting?

    You can grow Morpankhi from cutting Before snipping the stems, sterilize and clean your pruning shears with a solution of 1 part pine oil cleaner and 3 parts water. This will ensure that the fresh cuttings remain unharmed by bacteria or infection. While the stem tips root the fastest, you can take cuttings from the base, middle, or lower section of the dieffenbachia plant. Wear rubber gloves and cut at least 3-4″ inches of the cane. Cut at least 3 sections to increase your success rate. Remove any leaves and place the cutting in direct sunlight or leave it to dry overnight. Next, dip them in a high-quality rooting medium. Now, prepare a flower pot with potting soil made from half sand and half peat moss. Moisten the mix thoroughly. Place the Morpankhi cuttings horizontally into the potting mix, with the bottom portion inserted into the soil and the leaf bud above the soil. Keep the potting mix in a warm location at around 75°F (24°C) and moist for optimal root growth. You can also cover the plant cutting with a plastic sheet to keep the soil moist and humidity levels constant. Keep watering the plant whenever the soil looks dry.
