For this, cut the lignified stalk with a sharp knife and immerse it in warm water with wood or activated charcoal in order to wash off the milky juice. Then the stalk should be dried a little, and the leaves bound in a tube, to reduce the evaporation of moisture from the plant.

So that the rooting takes place faster, beforePlace in the greenhouse, the stalk must be immersed in phytohormones (Kornevin or Phytopharma). Further it should be planted in a mini-greenhouse (peat, sphagnum moss and sand should be covered with a film) and daily spray and aerate the greenhouse. Also, the process of rooting will be accelerated up to a month by the lower heating of the greenhouse.
