Do you have an anthurium plant that’s so pretty that you’d like to have another just like it? Well, you can, just by taking a cutting from the one you have. It’s easier than you might think – and fun to do, too!

Propagate anthuriums by cuttings

To grow an anthurium from a cutting, cut a stem from the plant and trim off all the leaves close to the stem. Then cut the stem into a number of pieces, each of which has to have at least one eye (leaf bud). Then stick the pieces in an upright position in a pot containing a loose, well-draining mixture of half sand and half peat and preferably cover the cuttings with a translucent plastic foil. Keep the potting soil somewhat moist and best at a temperature of 25 to 30 degrees C. The cuttings should start to develop roots and leaves within a few weeks. Once the small plants are large enough to handle, transplant them to larger pots.
