    Step 3: Change the water regularly and wait for roots to develop from the stem.

    Step 4: Once roots are established, transfer the cutting to a pot with soil.

  3. Offset Propagation:

    Step 1: Identify small offshoots growing from the main plant and carefully separate them, ensuring they have roots.

    Step 2: Plant each offset in its own pot with soil, water adequately, and provide proper sunlight.

  4. Tips for Success:

    • Ensure your Chinese money plant is healthy before attempting propagation.
    • Use well-draining soil to prevent root rot and fungal diseases.
