I think that it was New Orleans, in 2004 when I first realized it.
Plants are created with an incredible will to survive. From cacti to bamboo to so many others. They just want to live. Sometimes, just a broken-off piece of a plant is enough to start a whole new plant. To make matters even more interesting, there are people who pay money to purchase plants.
In this video, I share a recent experience and some of my thoughts about it.
Basically, if you can cut branches into pieces and drop them into a bucket of water, then you can propagate plants. Well, at least certain kinds of plants. The Walking Stick Weeping Willow that I have in the video was a cutting that someone gave to me about a month ago!
I dropped it into a bucket of water, left to Texas and Mexico for nine days and it has been a few weeks since then. Now, about a month later, the plant is still doing great and growing roots, so I chopped it into a few more pieces to make even more new trees.
The incredible part is that propagated trees like this can sell for anywhere between $10 - $80 USD! With a little effort, time, and space, anyone can start up a business on the side. Check out the video for more, or any of the links below for other propagation ideas and techniques.
