ZZ plant experiment.....

emerald1951July 31, 2012

Hi all, has anyone here ever tryed to propagate ZZ plants..

I read about it and heres my attempt at it, I read that it takes a year, is that right....I have one piece in water and the rest in soil....I found a branch broken at a green house and I asked if I could have it to try and grow, and they gave it to me, but said it probably wouldn't work. what do you think and any help is welcome....thank you ....linda............

Hi Linda,

I tried it once and it worked, but it did take a long time (a few months, not a year). I started from a leaf, like you appear to be doing with your tray. The leaf developed a bulb, not roots.
Good luck!
