How Do You Propagate Euphorbia Greenwayi?

How Do You Propagate Euphorbia Greenwayi?

Euphorbia Greenwayi can be propagated by stem cutting and seeds. To propagate by stem cutting, you have to take a section of the plant and dip it in rooting hormone. Stick it into moist soil, check the next day to see if it has started sprouting.

Allow the stem cut to grow until it is at least 2-3 inches long, then use your finger nail to remove the tip and place in a container of rooting fluid (1 part water, 3 parts peat).

When propagating by seeds, bury them and lightly cover them with sand or potting mix. To help germinate them faster, put a warm light over the tray they’re being planted in. The following are steps to follow when propagating Euphorbia Greenwayi by;

Stem cutting

  • Take a cutting that has already developed roots and dip it for 10 seconds in rooting hormone.
  • Stick it into moist soil, check the next day to make sure it has started sprouting.
  • Allow the stem cut to grow until it is at least 2-3 inches long, then use your finger nail to remove the tip and place in a container of rooting fluid (1 part water, 3 parts peat).
  • Plant the cutting in a container filled with potting soil, being careful not to disturb the roots.
  • Water it lightly and keep it in a warm place for 2-3 weeks.
  • Place it in direct sunlight, if possible, to harden off the plant before transplanting into its permanent setting.
  • Water it regularly while in its permanent location to help it get established and to keep the soil moist but not soggy.

Propagating by seeds

  • Take a seed from Euphorbia Greenwayi and lightly cover it with sand or potting mix.
  • Put a warm light over the tray where your seeds are going to be planted and put it in a well-lit spot for about two weeks to see if any have germinated. If you have germinated, move them into rich soil, water them and place them in a sunny window for about three weeks, then place in the soil again.
  • Plant your Euphorbias in well-drained soil and make sure they do not get too dry. They do best in a soil that is half an inch deep.
  • Make sure the temperature is between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and between 55 and 60 degrees at night.
  • Keep the soil moist, but not soggy.
  • Feed your Euphorbias every two weeks with a diluted cactus fertilizer or with balanced liquid fertilizers mixed with water.
  • They prefer light to medium atmosphere and do not like high temperatures or long periods of dryness. Keep a humidifier in the room if you have high temperatures or dry air that can harm your plants.
  • Prune your Euphorbias if they outgrow their pot or you want to make new plants. Make a clean cut just above the terminal bud, and remove 6 to 8 inches of stem.
  • Make sure you protect your plant from frost when it is outdoors in winter or freeze conditions can occur when plants are exposed to freezing temperatures for a long period of time.
