How to fertilize and propagate geranium: tips to make it grow abundantly



3 drops of castor oil

1/2 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide

1 liter of water


Mix all ingredients together and apply the solution directly to the soil. This will make your geraniums lush and vibrant!

Materials for Geranium Propagation:

Activated charcoal

Geranium cutting

Recycled glass jar

Twine or string

Universal potting soil


Old jam jar

Propagation Steps:

Start with a geranium cutting. Using a disinfected pair of scissors, trim the leaves, leaving only a few at the top.

Prepare a bowl of crumbled activated charcoal and dip the live end of the cutting into it. This acts as a natural rooting hormone.

Take an old jam jar and fill it halfway with water.

Take a recycled paper cup and make a hole at the bottom.

Thread a string through the hole, tying it securely, with the longer part hanging outside the cup.

Fill the cup with a mixture of potting soil and perlite.

Place the cup into the jar so that the string touches the water.

Wait a few weeks for the cutting to root – it usually takes around 20 days.

Once rooted, the geranium is ready to be transplanted into a new pot.

By following these straightforward steps, you can easily multiply your geraniums at home. Not only is this method cost-effective, but it's also a natural and fulfilling way to enhance your living space with beautiful blooms. For a visual guide to this process, don't forget to check out our video!
