How To Grow Curry Leaf From Cuttings

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

You know what, I think I should start growing a few more plants from cuttings. Some gardeners swear that it is way easier to use cuttings than seeds, but I guess I like the hard way. Well in the past I have grown basil from cuttings and have even made rooting hormone. Now I just need to make an effort and I will start by trying to grow curry leaf plant from cuttings.

The cuttings maybe a little tricky to actually get ahold of. Luckily my good old friend Sarah has this plant in her garden so, I just clipped a few stems from that. Alternatively you could try the nursery, farmers market or grocery store. In the video below, he had to go to an Indian grocery store, I don’t know how many of those are out there, but if you have one close by then sure pop by and see if they have any.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh curry leaves
  • potting soil
  • small container
  • sharp knife
  • mason jar
  • rooting hormone
  • pencil or spoon

Prepare your potting soil in your container by moistening it with water. The best type of stem to use is one that is not only firm but also flexible. Then you will have to remove leaves from the base of the stem, leaving about 4 to 5 inches. The next part is important, identify a leaf node on the bottom section of the stem and cut just below it with your knife.

Fill the mason jar with water and then dip the end you just cut into water, this is to prevent it from drying out. Lift your cutting from the jar, and shake it a few times to remove any excess water. Then you just dip it into your rooting hormone and coat the cut end.

Use the pencil or the spoon to make a hole in the center of the potting soil. If you have a shaky hand this the ask someone to slowly and carefully lower the cutting into the hole, without disturbing the coating. Push the soil around the stem and transport your pot to an area that gets a lot of daily sunlight. Also remember to water your plant every 3 to 4 days.
