How to Use the Rubber Band Hack to Grow New Plants Quickly
1. Cutting the Leaves
Snip off 2-3 healthy leaves near the petiole. Ensure the snipping tool is properly sterilized. Remember this hack is perfect for plants you can grow leaves, some of the names are listed below.
2. Take a Small Bowl or Cup and Wrap Rubberbands
Take a small square cup or a bowl and fill it with growing medium; it can either be soil or water.
Now, wrap the rubberbands in three layers, as shown in the picture, or as many as you want, depending on the size of your container. Use a total of 6 rubberbands and pair them in groups of 2. The forced space between them is what you will use to keep the leaves in place.
If you are rooting them in water, add that in the last.
3. Fix the Leaves in Rubberbands
The role of the rubberbands here is to keep the leaves firmly in place so that the petiole remains in contact with the growing medium.
Make sure that you swiftly snug the leaves between the bands, not damaging them in the process. This will speed up the rooting process by a good margin.
4. Keep the Bowl at a Bright Spot
That’s it! Keep the bowl where it gets plenty of bright but indirect daylight. If you have used water as a growing medium, change it once in 3-4 days.
If you have used soil, moisten it using a mister every few days.
5. New Growth!
After about a couple of weeks, the leaves will form tiny roots. At this point, you can transplant the leaves into a different vase filled with water or shift them into a small 3-4 inches pot that soil, and soon you will have a new plant growing!
