Parents to be
Before you start taking cuttings, it’s a good idea to check whether your amigo is ready for this at all. Fortunately, you can find this out fairly quickly with such a rascal from the Calathea family. These top plants automatically produce new plant babies; little copies of the mother plant. They do this as follows: Calatheas create new stems underground. After a while, these stems emerge above ground (real powerhouses). These new stems are ideal for staking. So, are there new stems in your pot? Then your plant is a real mommy or daddy to be!
