Succulents can actually be found all over the world. They are therefore quite simple plants. They absorb water in their thick leaves and are therefore sweet for at least a few weeks. You can safely forget about the succulent plant, especially in winter. They don’t mind at all!
A big disadvantage of succulents is that they don’t grow that fast. If you are going to propagate succulents you need a good dose of patience.
- Flower pot with fresh potting soil
Step-by-step plan for the propagation of a Succulent
- You don’t need a knife for the propagation of most succulents. However, it is good to keep the knife at hand.
- To start with, clean the knife with disinfectant or pure alcohol. This is wise, because otherwise you might spread bacteria unnecessarily.
- Then gently twist a leaf off the mother plant. Be careful not to pull on the leaf. Make sure you have completely loosened the leaf from the trunk.
- Is it not possible to gently twist the leaf? Then you can use the knife for this.
- Then take the flowerpot with fresh soil. You can put the loose leaf/cutting on the soil. If you want to make several cuttings you can put all the leaves on the soil in a pattern.
- Do not water the cuttings. This is very important!
- Despite the fact that it is better not to give water, it is wise to mist it. You can regularly mist the cuttings with a plant sprayer.
- After about 6 weeks, in addition to roots, new leaves will have developed on the cutting. From this moment on you can finally give the cuttings water.
