Mogra is a type of plant whose flowers are small white color with nice fragrant. Its botanical name is "Jasminum sambac". It is widely cultivated for its attractive and sweetly fragrant flowers.

So, let's start with the process.

How to grow mogra plant from cutting: step by step

1. Take some semi-hardwood cuttings that are green and brown in colour from a mature plant. Mogra can be easily grown from cuttings whenever the temperature is between 20 to 35 degrees celsius (68-95 f).

2. Prepare the cuttings by removing any excess leaves. Always use sharp and clean pruning tools to the stems.

3. Make a 45-degree angle cut at the bottom, 6 to 8 inch long cuttings are perfect for planting.

4. Take a potting mix with 20% organic compost, 60% normal garden soil, 20% fine sand and will make the potting mix well-drained and it will also make the potting mix soft which helps in root formation.

5. Take a medium-size pot with a drainage hole at the bottom, cover the hole with stone and fill it with the potting mix.

6. Scratch the bottom part of the cutting to expose the cambium layer, this will help to increase the area from which roots will be produced.

7. Dip the bottom tips, about 1 inch, of the mogra cuttings in honey/Rooting hormone powder. Honey is a natural antiseptic and contains antifungal properties both of which are believed to be one of the reasons honey as the rooting hormone seems to work so well.

8. Now, it is ready to pot the cuttings and Gently nudge the soil around the cutting to remove air pockets.

9. Give water to cuttings and keep the soil moist at all times, never dry and especially not soggy, which promotes fungal rot of the cuttings.

10. Keep the pot in a warm location with bright but indirect light.

11. Leaves will start growing after 25 to 30 days. As your cutting started to grow, you should avoid allowing the soil to dry out, but you also prevent becoming soggy.

  1. It is helpful to add some Epsom salt to the soil mixture. Also I have observed that using a taller pot so that much of the cutting(about 8 or so inches) is in the soil with only 2-3 nodes (3-4 inches) exposed works better.
