Do you want to propagate geraniums in your home for free? Here’s how! It may seem difficult, but you just need to follow a few simple steps to start with a small card and then fill the whole house with color. You’ll need a few easy-to-find materials.

Do you have geraniums at home, but want to care for them in a more natural and effective way to literally fill your balcony? Here’s how! Maybe until today, you thought that the only solution was to buy a new planting, and yet, starting from the one you already have at home, you can have many more! The infallible and completely natural tricks to fertilize and propagate them for free!

DIY fertilizer


  • 3 drops of castor oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 quart of water


We dilute all the ingredients together and then use the resulting mixture directly on the soil to fertilize. Our geraniums immediately become lusher! And to spread it?


  • Charcoal
  • Cut geraniums
  • Glass for recycling
  • String thread
  • Old jam jar


Here’s the trick to propagating your geraniums freely: with the help of well-disinfected scissors, start by removing the leaves from the cutting, leaving only the last leaves on top.

Now let’s prepare a bowl of crumbled activated charcoal and soak the living part of the cutting in it. This will help as a rooting hormone for the plant. Now we prepare the jar. Take an old jam jar and fill it halfway with water. Then we take a paper cup to be recycled and punch it into the bottom.

At this point, we insert a string thread to tie it well and stop it so that the longest part stays outside the jar. Now, we fill it with a mixture of potting soil and perlite. Only at the end we can put the cutting into the jar and then the jar into the pitcher so that the string touches the water. We wait a few weeks and our cutting will have taken root, only 20 days will be enough before we can plant it in its new pot!
