To start propagating your Flaming Katy plant, take cuttings from the mother plant using sharp scissors or pruning shears. Cut off 4-6 inches long stems with at least two sets of leaves attached.
Make sure not to damage the parent plant while taking cuttings; otherwise, it may affect its growth later on.

Once you have taken cuttings from the parent plant let them dry out for one to two days before planting them again.
3. Plant Them In Soil
After drying out the cutting place them in a well-draining potting soil mixture with some sand mixed into it (optional), making sure not to bury too much stem length below soil level firmly but gently press around each cutting until snugly settled into the potting mixtures.
Water thoroughly after planting and then wait for new roots and shoots to form within three weeks or so depending on temperature brightness humidity levels provided by surrounding conditions such as light exposure watering frequency etc., ultimately affecting how fast they develop hence patience required during rooting process.
4. Provide Optimal Growing Conditions
Ensure optimal growing conditions are maintained throughout propagation period; provide plenty of bright indirect sunlight water sparingly when needed keeping soils barely moist ensuring not to overwater, and keep an eye on the temperature surrounding the plant.
Propagation of Flaming Katy is simple and easy if you follow the steps mentioned above. It’s a rewarding process that will allow you to grow more plants without spending much money. Remember to provide optimal growing conditions for your propagated plants, ensuring they develop healthy root systems, enabling them to thrive in their new environment.
