Grease the aglaonema stems with shoot-stimulating hormone, then attach a small pot around the stem to accommodate the media. As a result, roots on the stem will appear about 3-4 weeks later.
- Stem cuttings without leaves. Slice the stem to the length of the cutting depending on your preference. You can slice one segment, two segments, three segments, or more. At least, at least in one segment, there is one bud. The longer the space cut, the faster the shoots and roots will form.
