new babies πŸ₯ΉπŸ’– #PropagationStation #SucculentLove
Sweet! Dude, I’m struggling propagating these sedum jelly beans 🫘. They either dry out or rot. Any tips?
@Esmeralda honestly i picked these guys up off the floor of lowes and dropped them in a pot w my cactus babies, im super surprised how well they’re doing ! bc i’m having so much anxiety w my actual jellybean plant and it’s leaves that fall off 🀧😩
@privvgrayson Omgee saaaeeeaahh! Like what the heck, I see natural thriving propagation everywhere except for my propagation station at home. πŸ˜€
@Esmeralda I've found propagating Jade a very slow process, I let them callous then just set them on the soil (I used cactus mix and perlite mixed with a little moisture control soil) and after a couple died and patience lookie πŸ‘€I got a couple babies and the others all have little roots. I do mist the soil a couple times a day.. Otherwise I leaf them alone 🀣 hang in there Ezzi, they'll surprise you πŸŒ±πŸ‘€πŸ₯°πŸ’ž
@Sassylimey you’re definitely right, and thanks for that reminder because I get antsy. I think me as a beginner, expect all my leaf propagation to have a 100% rate when in reality it’s a very low rate. I’ve had about 20 leaves and only 3 make it and now I’m not sure how to go from there lol they are still so small I’m not sure if those will even make it … Question, after the wrinkled leaf is off what now?
@Esmeralda if the leaf separated from the baby I would think you could pot it up on its own in a tiny pot! To be honest I've not got to that stage yet, my babies are tiny, I'm sure we could get help for this question @RJG
I generally leave them where they are once the separate until they get quite a bit bigger and I can trust they have roots to support a move.
