This plant can be easily propagated by dividing a well-grown plant. Mid-spring to early summer is the best time to do this. First, gently open the plant. Using a sharp knife, divide it into sections with several leaves. So that each part has roots. Then, place each one alone in a 9 cm diameter pot containing peat-based potting compost. After planting, cover it with a clear plastic bag to provide the plant with the moisture it needs. Keep the pot away from direct sunlight at a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius. After 6 to 8 weeks, your plant will take root and you will have to remove the plastic bag to be placed in the natural environment. Regular control and inspection of aeration and removal of infected leaves, when the plant is under the plastic bag, will cause thin leaves. This plant does not rot.
