How to Grow Parijat from Cutting
You can easily grow parijat from the cutting taken from a healthy plant during the springs or early summers.
- Snip off a 6-8 inches long cutting from a healthy plant, right below the node.
- Discard all the leaves from the lower section, leaving a few at the top.
- Plant it in a pot filled with well-draining potting soil.
- Water well and cover it with a plastic bag.
- Keep the pot at a bright, indirect sunlight location.
- Also, mist it periodically whenever the soil feels dry to touch.
- The cutting will develop new roots within 3-4 weeks from the day of planting.
Growing Requirements of Parijat
The plant loves sunlight. Once matured, keep it at a location that gets 5-6 hours of direct sun. Avoid keeping it at a shady place, as it will result in stunted growth and less or no flowers.
Keep the soil slightly moist but not damp. Water the soil only when the topsoil feels dry to touch.
Use well-draining, moist, porous, and fertile soil. Amend it with organic matter like compost, vermiculture, or aged cow dung manure.
For containers, you can use any standard potting mix available for potted plants. You can also DIY a soil mix by mixing equal parts of garden soil, coarse sand, and cow dung manure.
