I have a large monstera plant that was gifted to me when we moved to Colorado back in January. This plant has grown like no other plant I’ve owned. A friend who was visiting me this weekend suggested that I cut back some of the plant and propagate it.
So I’ve done just that. I have cut back a few branches and placed them in water to grow roots. Hopefully I’ll be able to replant them and this once one pot monstera will have spread over multiple containers to be given away or placed in other corners of the house.
When I think of propagation, I think of pruning. When you cut something away that is not necessary anymore it allows for more growth. The plant that has been cut away from now has more room to grow and becomes stronger in a sense.
I think I’m being pruned and propagated right now. I’m not growing green monstera leaves but I’m learning how to leave anxiety behind and become more strongly rooted in joy. Resentment and fears are being pruned away in this season of life to reveal richer relationships with friends and family.
We are pretty much like big green plants I guess. Water, sunlight and a little pruning go a long way.
