Nanouk is a hybrid between a Pilea peperomioides, also known as the Chinese Money Plant, and an Urtica lyrata. It is a unique type of houseplant that makes for a popular choice among gardeners due to its attractive foliage and ease of propagation. In this blog post, we will be discussing how to propagate Nanouk in order to keep them healthy and thriving in your home or garden.
Selecting Cuttings for Propagation
When it comes to propagating Nanouk, the most important thing you need to do is select cuttings from healthy plants with lots of leaf nodes (the parts where leaves originate). The best time of year for collecting cuttings from Nanouk plants is during spring or summer when they are actively growing. Make sure that the cutting has at least three leaf nodes on it so that you can have more chances of success when starting your new plant. You can either take stem cuttings or individual leaves off the plant- both will work just fine!
Preparing Cuttings For Propagation
Once you have collected your cuttings, it’s time to prepare them for propagation. This step involves removing any older leaves that may be present on the cutting before placing them into soil-filled containers. To do this, use clean scissors or pruners and carefully snip off any dead/discolored bits at each node point first then make sure not to damage any healthy looking stems/leaves when performing this task! Afterward, dip each end of the cutting into rooting hormone powder which helps promote root growth from those areas where new roots will form later on after being planted into the container filled with soil mixture prepared specifically designed for house plants such as perlite + vermiculite mixtures (or something similar).
