Growing Aparajita from Cuttings

To propagate Aparajita from cuttings, choose a healthy stem segment at least 4-6 inches long.

Ensure it has several leaves and is free from disease or damage.

Trim the cutting just below a node (the point where leaves emerge) using clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears.

Place the cutting in a small pot filled with a well-draining potting mix.

Water it thoroughly, and cover the pot with a plastic bag or a clear plastic dome to create a humid environment.

Keep the cutting in indirect sunlight.

After a few weeks, once roots have formed, transplant the cutting into a larger container or your garden.

Ensure it receives adequate sunlight and regular watering.
