How to Propogate my Schefflera

Posted by shalah 4/5 (My Page) on

I have a Schefflera that I received for my wedding over 7 years ago. After moving, some of the stalks died off. I now only have one stalk with leaves only coming out of the top 1/4 of the plant. I would really like to propogate so I can keep it.
I've read and found that herbaceous(sp)cutting is what I should do, I just can't find enough info about how much and where to cut. Any help would be appreciated.

try cutting the stalk 3-4 inches below the lowest leaf. allow to airdry (about 12 hours). then apply 0.1% IBA rooting hormone. Suport the cutting with a stick. mist the cutting. takes 20-50 days to root.
