Beautiful Speckle Leafed Plant is Aucuba japonica

Hi Judy, I brought this plant back to life, but would love to know exactly what it is and how to best propagate it. Thanks!


Your plant looks like an Aucuba japonica. It is very easy to propagate using stem cuttings. Dip the cut ends in Rooting HormoneRooting Hormone helps plant cuttings produce new roots and is very important to use if you want your propagation attempts to be successful. Always dip the cut end of a stem or leaf into water and then dip it into the rooting hormone before planting it. Tap off any excess powder since too much hormone is worse than too little., stick them into the soil, and keep the soil barely moist.
