I noticed something I had never seen before when shopping. I wanted to buy a five dollar succulent plant from our local department store called The Warehouse. The small plants rerouting growing in addition to the single potted medium sized succulent plant.
I did not end up buying the plant but I just kept thinking of what was going on with that plant. By using google and pinterest when I got home I grew a love for succulents and an obsession with looking how to create terrariums.
In this blog I am going to show you how to propagate a succulent plant successfully to regrow multiples of the same one plant.
- First you will need a succulent plant that is healthy or atleast the leaves are healthy.
- You will need to gently pull left right left right until the succulent leaf comes off clean. If it does not come off clean there still may be a chance it will sprout new routes. It should look something like this
- It is important to let the succulent leaves dry out between 3-5 day so they callus over. This process restricts the amount of water and hydration the succulent leaf receives. You can let them dry out on a handy towel, very dry soil or a window ledge but not in direct sunlight.
- Once the succulent leafs have callused over you can now place them lying on moist soil. It will take between 5-6 weeks before the start sprouting routes but once you see the pink and/or white routes they quickly form the leaves and stems.
- The images below are succulents after 3 months although put on soil 2 weeks apart
- It is best to water every 2-3 days but with a spray bottle so the soil stays semi moist and the new sprouted routed are not overwhelmed by water
