The best preparedness blogs out there
A great project to stretch your dollars is a cheap propagation box. This will be used to root cuttings from plants to create new plants that you can enjoy, trade for new plants, or sell for some extra money. This can be done in very little time and to great success.We have literally rooted thousands of plants in boxes just like the one pictured above. The one in the picture is typically the one I root household plants in. The outside ones are brought out when the weather warms and are bigger. This cheap propagation box will allow you to root even those considered hard to root.
Whatever medium you use lightly moisten it so it is damp. Once you have your cheap propagation box built it is time to for the cuttings to be planted. This is also a good time to prune plants if needed. Lightly dust your cuttings in rooting powder and then plant them in the medium. Continue to do this until the box is full.
Continue to check the water approximately once a week never letting it run out of water. You should also be looking for new growth or leaves. After a couple of weeks you can gently pull on the cuttings to see if the roots have grown.
Once you determine there is new growth or sufficient roots transplant the new plants into a new container and watch it grow. This system can be used over and over again with great results.
