All plants are made up of nodes and internodes. Plant nodes allow for new growth to emerge from a stem, such as aerial roots, new branches, or leaves. The number of nodes available with any healthy, growing plant is also dependent on its type. With plant nodes from Peace Love and Happiness Club, you can propagate a variety of different types of plants, from the Monstera, to the Scindapsus, to variations of the Philodendron.
All growth originates in plant nodes (internodes are the sections of stem between them), and they can be used to influence the growth of a plant as well with proper pruning. To encourage growth from a specific area of the plant, it should be pruned about the node. But if you’re looking to propagate from your existing plant, it should be pruned below the node. This gives you a plant node with the cutting, like those we have available for easy propagation!
You can also identify plant nodes in a few easy ways. Any bud, leaf, branch, etc. will always be attached to a node, as they cannot be grown without one! But if you can’t find a visible bud or leaf, there are other visual cues, such as scarring in the wood where growth has fallen away, flattening in the wood creating a small knob, or even sections of hollow stems.
