Q.Baby Swiss Cheese Plant

Anonymous added on May 18, 2011 | Answered

I noticed one morning, to my surprise, my cheese plant had another baby one growing by the side of it. It’s about 4 inches now and has two leaves.  I was wondering if it is a good idea to separate it and plant it on its own.  I had not heard about a new plant just growing without taking a cutting first.

The baby plant is called a pup. I would leave it attached until it has 4 leaves. Then you can remove it. Just make sure it has some roots attached to it when you remove it from the mother plant.
