Who doesn't love succulents? Finally we have had time to give it a whirl; propagating some new plants from leaf cuttings. Being the first time, there has been a lot of uncertainty but as you can see the wee roots are coming along nicely!
After letting the leave tips "scar" over, I placed them on a shallow bed of cactus & succulent soil. I used a super spray bottle to gently mist them for a few days, then used a more direct stream in the soil in front of each tip - daily. They are in a sunny spot but not direct sunlight & happily more than expected are rooting! Experts said half would be acceptable but we are at a good 70%!!
It all started with this group that I purchased to beautify my Grandpa's old toolbox; which is likely about 30+ years old. Then the addiction kicked in.....hee hee
Happy Summer friends & don't forget how good it feels to get your hands dirty!
