Geranium Plant Brought Into House


In the fall bring the geranium plant(s) into the house and put in a sunny location. By doing this you can propagate new plants throughout the winter months in preparation for spring.



STEP 1: With a sharp knife cut off the tender, new growth from the geranium plant about 2 - 4 inches in length.

STEP 2: Put the cuttings in a container (jar, vase, glass) with water. Remove any leaves that may be below the water level because they will rot.

STEP 3: Place the containers filled with geranium cuttings on a windowsill so they get a lot of light but not direct light.

STEP 4: In a few weeks the geraniums should begin to develop roots.

After plants begin to grow, you can transplant them to other containers or put them in the ground when weather permits.
