From 7 July (date of propagation) to 22 September, this is what my succulent looks like.
I took the second picture last week. You can see the transformation within a week. The colour has changed and the propagated leaf is starting to dry. 🌱
This is my #plantfailfriday post! We are having some extreme wind with the weather going from cold to hot to cold again. My #cocoonplant blew off of the 2nd floor shelf and onto our drive way. 😩
The good news is I just researched how to #propagate them last week when all of my #waterpropagation failed. 💦
HOW TO PROPAGATE❗️
1️⃣ Remove leaf from plant. ✅
2️⃣ Let it callus over. Few days ✅
3️⃣ Stick the callus end in cactus soil! ✅
PS thank you wife for taking care of this guy!
I’m obsessed with @hiltoncarter ‘s propagation wall. If you haven’t seen it, you need to! The one that I want is out of stock but I want to experiment before I decide where to hang mine. I found these two (oops I may have bought more 🤷🏻♀️) at my local craft store. There is oddly enough a lot of glass vessels out right now for Halloween and this was supposed to be a creepy scientist prop... @michaelsstores - You say creepy scientist, I say propagation station! I got it for under $5! And the other one was a “fall accessory” that was 60% off. Of course you can use any glass container around your house but I’m experimenting a bit with propagating and this is easier with so many little “helpers” around my house. I’m excited for this weekend project! What do you use to propagate your plants? •••
I just learned how to propagate the leaves from my succulents. I didn’t realize how easy this was or I would have done it a long time ago. Pop off a leaf, make sure it’s a clean break from the plant itself, put in a pot out of direct sunlight and wait. And wait... and wait some more. Then eventually you will start seeing these cute little buds of a new plant. I’m gonna have so many succulents I won’t know what to do with them all;)
