You need a stem cutting for this method. So, your first step is to cut that stem cutting from your Philodendron Burle Marx. But before you make that cut, you need to know what makes the perfect stem cutting. The cutting should be between two and four inches in length. And you should cut right below a leaf node. You need a pair of sterilized pruning shears for this task. You can use isopropyl alcohol to sterilize the shears. Now you’re ready to get your stem cutting.
Your new stem cutting needs to cure now. To cure it, the cutting has to sit out in a warm room for seven to 10 days. During this time, one end of the cutting is going to callous over. A calloused end improves the chances of the cutting rooting when it’s planted.
During the seven to 10 days of the curing, you should get prepared. This means you should get the plant pot and soil ready for your stem cutting. It’s easier to use sphagnum peat-moss as the soil, even for a cutting. The plant pot should have drainage holes.
Once the week or so of curing is up, it’s time to plant your Philodendron stem cutting. Use your finger to make a hole that’s a few inches deep. Place the cutting in the hole and pack the soil around it.
If your stem cutting won’t stay standing upright, try tying it to a straw. This should hold the cutting up.
Place your stem cutting in a north-facing or east-facing window. Water and fertilize it like you do the mother plant. After a month or so, the stem cutting will start to take root.
