Propagation Wall

What is Wall Propagation?


Wall propagation involves planting a variety of plants so that they can be attached directly to a wall to grow. With the right mounting system, you can attach small pots to the wall with suction cups or other attachments. The new plants will grow their roots out and down, hanging from your wall until they are long enough to be planted in a larger container. A propagation wall is perfect for growing popular house plants. You may also want to use them for growing herbs indoors.


Why Is Wall Propagation A Good Idea?

Plant lovers tend to have more houseplants than they know what to do with. A propagation wall is a great way to increase your collection of plants while ensuring that they’re not taking up too much space. 


Wall propagation can be an excellent project for kids too. They can help you collect the materials, plant the cuttings, and learn about the growth process. Plus, they’ll have their own little terrarium to show off to friends and family once their plants are fully grown.


Free Way To Expand Your Houseplant Collection 

If you’ve always wanted to grow your own plants but didn’t have the space or the desire to buy a bunch of potted plants and find the right places to put them, a propagation wall is the perfect solution. One of the most satisfying things about growing your own plants is that you’re always free to propagate more.


If you don’t have enough space to plant new ones, you can simply grow more of what you already have. Wall propagation is an easy and effective way to grow new, free plants from existing ones. 


Extends Your Favorite Plant’s Life

Wall propagation is a great way to extend the life of your plant babies. If you have a plant that you love but are slowly killing with improper watering, you can propagate it. You can take a few stems from your favorite plant and grow them into a new plant. 


Growing plants will add new enjoyment to your life, as you’ll always have something to look forward to. You can propagate almost any plant with a few exceptions, such as cacti. However, most plants can be propagated in this way.


It can be meditative 

Gardening is a great way to relax and forget about the hectic stresses of life. Growing your own plants is often more relaxing than buying them, as you can ensure they’re organic and free of harmful chemicals.


Wall propagation is a great way to relax, no matter where you live. Depending on the plant growing requirements, you can do this project indoors or out. You can do this project in the evenings or on the weekend in front of the television, or even while listening to some calming music.

How To Propagate With Stem Cuttings 

Make The Cuttings


You first need to choose the type of plants you want to use for your cuttings. You can use plants with woody stems or vines. You cannot use soft stems or vines like succulents.


Then, you need to cut the stems at the right length. The best length for propagation is about 3 to 4 inches. If you are using vines, you need to make sure that the stem is thicker than a pencil.


Remove Excess Leaves


You should always remove the leaves from the stem's bottom half to prevent rot from forming. You should also remove any flowers or seeds growing on the stem because they will try to grow in your propagation medium and take away resources from the new plant.


Place In Water


Next, you need to place the stem in water. It is best to use distilled water, as it won’t have any minerals that may kill your cutting. You can also use rainwater, but you may need to add a bit of fertilizer to it. 


Wait For Root Growth


After a few weeks, you should see roots forming in the water. This means that your plant cuttings are ready to be placed in the growing medium. You should place the cutting so the roots are covered with the growing medium, but the top part of the stem isn’t.


Time To Transfer!


You can place the growing medium in a tray or pot and gently pot the cutting in the medium. You can also take the growing medium and gently place it in the tray with the cutting.


After the transfer, you need to water the growing medium. You can use a mixture of water and fertilizer or a ready-made solution such as a rooting hormone. Ensure that your pot has some holes in the bottom to ensure proper drainage. After transferring the propagated free plants, hang and arrange them on a wall or a shelf in the proper light conditions.


Final Thoughts


Wall propagation is a great way to expand your collection of plants. It’s easy to do and can be done in your house or outdoors. You can propagate almost any plant and even species that aren’t generally grown from cuttings. 


Wall propagation is also a great thing to do with friends or children. It’s a great way to bond and have fun while growing your own plants. Whether you’re an avid gardener or want to add a few houseplants to your living spaces, wall propagation is an excellent way to do so.


Propagation stations can be a great solution for growing plants indoors. They provide all of the light, water, and space that your plants need to thrive. You can create your own wall-mounted propagation station with just a few simple and inexpensive materials.


With the right tools, materials, and knowledge, you can create your station in no time. Happy propagating!
