Peat Pod/ Soil Method (Other Method)

For best results inflate the zip lock bag and place it under a strong indirect light source. We get decent results just relying on a South facing window but see much better results under some sort of bright indirect light (LED, Fluro, HPS). The Kratom Bible is available here on the #kratomAPP

Kratom Cuttings


Typically takes up to around 3 weeks for the cuttings to begin to root. 


If the ziplock bag stays sealed water loss will be almost nothing. Misting our pouring a table spoon or two of water in there when the pod starts to firm up is recommended. 

Lighting Options

Artificial lighting methods allow for quicker rooting. However a South facing window will suffice.


Once your cuttings establish roots, you will want to move them to a 3inch pot. Plant the entire pod and rootball in the new pot (potting soil works best).

Note from the grower

Your unrooted cuttings have already been cut back to the freshest node, and covered in rooting hormone.

How high should the humidity be?

Lastly, we add the cutting to a plastic Zip Lock like bag or you can take them out and put them into a very large plastic container. Regardless of how you are rooting them you need to ensure that the plants are kept in high humidity at all times. Do not leave the cuttings out of the bag for more then 20 min at a time. These plants require 80 – 100% humidity at all times.
