Orchids are elegant and refined plants, often given as gifts as a symbol of purity. There are methods studied by nurserymen that can also be replicated at home, so as to propagate these plants using only the flower twigs . This offers the opportunity to grow new seedlings , without purchasing them and in a unique way. Let’s find out together what gardeners’ method is to copy it?

Orchids, an ideal refined gift for any occasion

When you want to give a refined and elegant gift, you immediately think of the orchid plant. All the types available are rich in harmonious colours, with a fine and elegant stem representing purity and elegance from every point of view.

These plants can have different meanings depending on the color and also the type that is chosen. One of all is the pink one to symbolize love and also gratitude. If a white orchid is given as a gift, then it is intended to symbolize purity and innocence. The yellow ones, on the other hand, wish prosperity and happiness to others.

Just as they are beautiful to give , they must be preserved and preserved in the best possible way. A plant of this type requires a lot of attention, so much so that an expert gardener will have to advise where to place it and how often to water it. That’s not all, in fact there are methods to propagate them quickly and easily.

Propagating orchids: the nurserymen’s method

Each type of plant requires different care , they are not all the same. Propagation is a particular process and as such must be applied correctly depending on the type in question.

To propagate by taking the flower twigs directly, you can do it using soil and a plastic bottle. Inside the soil there must be particular nutrients which can derive from the peel of the potato or that of the bananas.


To do this, just cut the stem with a cutter, so as to have small sprouts. Immediately afterwards it should be placed in the plastic bottle or in a glass jar together with the soil rich in potato peel.

Pour some water and then rub the stem with the help of a cotton ball. In this way the plant will be disinfected and free of any type of bacteria .

The two ends must then be sealed with candle wax, and then covered everything with a piece of transparent film. Make small holes in the plastic with the help of a toothpick and place everything in a bright, humid place with a temperature of 25°C. Spray with water and water day after day. After just 4 months you will be able to see the plant sprout elegantly and you can repeat the operation indefinitely. Be careful never to place the seedling in direct sunlight.
