Rosemary, with its versatile uses in culinary dishes, soothing herbal teas, cosmetics, and natural medicine, is a must-have plant in our homes. What many don’t know is that you can easily propagate rosemary from just a cutting, giving you a new and flourishing plant. If you’re keen on trying this method rather than purchasing a rosemary plant, you’re in the right place.

Materials Needed:

  • Healthy and strong rosemary stem measuring approximately 15 centimeters.

Propagation Steps:

  1. Cutting Preparation:
    • Cut the rosemary stem diagonally and let it rest overnight.
    • The next morning, remove all the leaves.
  2. Water Propagation:
    • Pour water into a glass container and place the rosemary cutting in it.
    • Position the container near a window, protected from cold drafts.
    • As water evaporates during growth, gradually add room temperature water.
  3. Germination:
    • After about a week, you’ll notice the first shoots emerging from the cutting.
    • Around three weeks in, the first roots will appear, indicating it’s time to plant the rosemary in soil.
  4. Planting in Soil:
    • Choose a pot with a depth of 15 centimeters, fill it with potting soil and compost.
    • Make a hole in the center and insert the rosemary cutting.
    • Water every 2 or 3 days.

Now that you know how to propagate rosemary from a cutting, give it a try and enjoy having a wonderful and thriving rosemary plant always within reach.
