Iโ€™m waiting for spring. Cuz miss Mirinae really does not like her new location. She is still dropping leaves ๐Ÿƒ from the top. At the same time I see new stems and leaves are sporting on the main stems (there 6 of them). #Graptopetalum #mirinae #graptopetalummirinae #lovesuccs #SucculentSquad #Succulents #succulent #SucculentLove #succulentsdepot #succulent
Super cool succulent fam!
Gorgeous pots too, whereโ€™d you get them? @vvvelo
@alex thx! It seems like it came to me damagedโ€ฆ So I had to rearrange it today
@alex the pots are from Amazon SOUJOY Set of 8 Succulent Pot with Drainage Tray, 4 Inch Ceramic Small Plant Pots, Natural Colors Garden Pots for Indoor Outdoor Home Desk Office Decoration
Hmmm not sure but new growth is always a good sign!
@Hypsie I had to revise this plant today. Several main stems were dry in the middle.
If sheโ€™s revised, she should be playing in a whole new ball game. The newer aerial roots shows that this plant will survive the main stem extractions โœ‚๏ธ
@CultivateEdu I hope ๐Ÿคž it survive. The main stems (there are 6 of them) are in a very bad condition. Unfortunately you canโ€™t see it on the photo, cuz camera can not catch that they are drying at the bottom, and I donโ€™t mean callus. As I see now, there is a chance that the main stems wonโ€™t survive. Many of them already dropped off all leaves ๐Ÿƒ ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข
@vvvelo post a picture. Maybe we can help.
@CultivateEdu Thank you. So here is photo. I marked part that is dry and empty inside. Even if I cut this piece, it will dry again the same way
@CultivateEdu I do not know maybe water propagation can help in this case.
@vvvelo so essentially you are chasing rot. Let me see if I can find anything on YouTube or online. Iโ€™ve had this problem. Ultimately some make it and some donโ€™t. Here is one plant that Iโ€™ve been struggling with but havenโ€™t researched it for myself lolโ€ฆ You have given me the motivation to research it!๏ฟผ
I cut this well beyond the rot and now it has dried up to this point. So now that it has been sitting out for approximately two weeks. There is no more rot and is dried up to where the plant is happy with releasing the stem. What Iโ€™m going to do๏ฟผ is leave just a little bit of the dried part and replant it.
You can see the plant is also sending out aerial roots at this time as well. Iโ€™ll tag you when I find more info.
@CultivateEdu Yeah I see. But I do not understand why mine it rotting if I cut above the dried Roth part. And instead of drying and forming callus the plant just rotting again.
@vvvelo sometimes there is a small amount of rot left over. if not, I wonder if the plant is drying up/dying back to a certain point so it can reach a natural rooting pointโ€ฆ such as how many plants lose part of their stem in water propagation. Here is some great info about stem and root rot. The article also says once you get it, there is about 20% survival chance. Seeing how they are publishing web articles and Iโ€™m an enthusiest, they are probably right. I just keep trying until the plant has given up.
