all of these pups are from the same plant, and are almost 4 months old. The rosettes in the top row are growing off the stem, and the pups in the bottom row are growing from leaves I plucked off the stem. Swipe to see the mama rosettes, they’ve grown some decent roots and are starting to perk up again.
Saucer full of pups
I have created a little area on my patio that I call my propagation station. I like to use saucers that normally sit under a pot. I fill them with soil and I put leaves all over them. Then i sit them on a table and leave them alone. Every now and then I will squirt them with a squirt bottle. But you do not really have to do that. #leafpropagation#propagation#stempropagation#succulent#succulentpups#Succulents https://www.surrealgardening.com/DailyRamblings/propagation/
The first two times I beheaded a succulent the stem just dried up and died, so when this leggy golden glow started to throw out these pups I was super excited- there’s a fifth one at the base of the stem 😁
I made it back to Quito! Only took about 24 hours. The TSA agent who had to swipe my carryon full of these plants for explosives asked if I was a botanist 😂🤷🏻♀️ If only I didn’t have to work today and could start potting these up! It’ll have to wait until tomorrow...
These three aloe babies are growing from a root structure from an aloe plant I beheaded. I bought the original aloe plant when I was living in New Mexico, moved it with me to Arizona, moved it again to my mom’s house in Seattle last summer where it stayed dormant all winter, until I moved it to Quito in March 🤷🏻♀️🌎💫🚛✈️ I first put it in full sun because that’s what it liked in Arizona, and it went brown and was super unhappy. My partner moved it inside, out of the sun (but at almost 10,000ft/3000m elevation on the Equator, our bright light is strong), and it turned this vibrant green and exploded with growth 😍 Check out my stories for pictures of this aloe through the years...
Theres no henny in the bottle, unless i was making perfume. Water is life
Im propagating stems: roses, cherry, morning glory. I've been successful with my succlents, hope these do just as well, Abracadabra 🙇🏾♀️
I love propagating marble queen pothos because every new leaf is a surprise...after beginning with a very variegated leaf, one solid green leaf and then one with a tiny little bit of variegation, what will be next?
