Plant Propagation: Taking Stem Cuttings - LECTURE
What you'll learn
With Sean and Allison from Spoken Garden, learn about stem cutting plant propagation. Learn about how plants grow and how that will influence stem harvesting and the treatment of each cutting. Get familiar with plant tissue maturity, harvest timing, and more, and how that will influence your stem cutting's ability to thrive (don't worry, they promise this won't be scary). Building on all this, you will learn the technique of how to take a stem cutting and what to do after for it's care in the weeks (or months) to come. If lecture times don't fit your schedule, please email Sean and Allison to see if there is another time they can be available. Also, for an even more in-depth experience, enroll in our hands-on stem cuttings LAB where Sean and Allison will coach you through the plant propagation techniques and steps in either a 30-minute or 60-minute session!
