Ok, I refuse to be the only blonde in the building. When a friend recently told me about this ‘pot’ I too was like… excuse me a what? What does it do? Anywho, fast forward to today I can educate you and also share with you how to make your own diy Forsythe pot.

If you have ever had problems propagating cuttings, this is a life saver. Simple to build and setup, it almost guarantees that every cutting that you place in it will grow roots. Thank you Mr or Mrs Forsythe for this, I couldn’t find a Wikipedia article for this.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 7″ plastic pot
  • clay pot
  • vermiculite
  • paper towel or scrap paper
  • small cork
  • water

Alright, are you ready for the fun part, the assembly line? Well we start off by blocking the drainage holes in both the the clay pot and the plastic pot. We used the paper towel for the plastic pot and the cork for the clay pot. The clay pot should not allow any drainage to occur.

This is the messy part, when you have to fill the plastic pot to the top with vermiculite and then like Hercules, shove down the clay pot into the center. You are almost done, all you have to do is water the vermiculite and then fill the clay pot with water.

How To Use: Wait until the water stops draining out of the vermiculite, and then place your cuttings into the vermiculite. The water gradually sips out of the clay pot, keeping the vermiculite damp and your cuttings in a moist environment.
