    культивировать

    Can I use this word in figurative expression.

    E.g. You should cultivate the culture/habit of saving money to children when they are young.

    You absolutely can. It's even a very good thing to do that.

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    One correction on the English: "to cultivate a (good) habit to in somebody."
