Q.Madagascar palm propogation.

Zone Portage, Indiana | MiguelMos added on November 27, 2017 | Answered

Alas sun is low. 7 yrs. old. Plant was grown in South window til 5′ high. Screen porch in the summer. Bending toward light in a spiral due to rotating the pot. 3″ diameter at the middle. I cut it in half, dusted with cinnamon, and planted both halves in fresh cactus mix. Watered once to settle media. It was in a lightless room for 2 weeks before the operation. Still lightless for 4 more days since. The leaves are beginning to brown. I’d like both pieces to survive. What to do now? Leave it in the dark? Buy grow lights. Put it back in the window? Don’t water for a month? Cry? It’s name is Hercule. Half Hercule now. If grow light, what frequency or typ is best? Please help. Sob!

Any low light condition, or dimly lit room would be appropriate at this time. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/palms-trees/propagate-palm-pups.htm
