How To Grow Basil From Cuttings
Taking cuttings from plants and rooting them is a fantastic way to speed up the process of growing a new plant. Here’s how to grow basil from cuttings…
First, snip off the top of a stem of basil.
Make sure you cut it below a leaf node (where a new little leaf is growing out of the elbow of a larger leaf).
Pinch off or cut the bottom two largest leaves.
It’ll look like this after you’ve removed the lower leaves.
Then place the cutting in a jar of water for about two weeks. That’s it!
Keep the water fresh, and you’ll have a nice set of roots growing in no time!
