Piper Betel careThe betel vine is propagated by terminal stem cuttings or setts about 30 - 45 cm long. Setts obtained from the top portions of the vines are easy to root and hence best for planting. It prefers slightly acidic, sandy-loamy and lightly damp soil but not waterlogged. Use the well-drained potting mix to plant it in a way that water will drain out from it quickly. Pick a less windy spot with partial shade for planting. Select a piece of rooted cutting of betel with at least three or four leaves. Remove the lowest leaf and plant the stem with the growing media in a pot.
