This is a question for people who have Graptopetalum Mirinae. How do you grow it? What do you do?
My Mirinae does not want to grow. It lose leaves then grows them back, then the stem dries out and I have to cut it. Then it speeds new root… and it looks like it grows but no… it stays bold like on the photo. I need help with it. Look at this bold lady. She does not want to be pretty. This is a question for those #SucculentSquad who have Mirinae and it grows well. #SucculentSquad #SucculentLove #Succulents #mirinae
I eventually killed mine because I gave it too much water (left it soaking overnight 🤦🏻‍♀️) but I placed it in a Northwest window all day everyday and the more sun it got, the more babies and stems it would push out! I would prune as well to encourage it to keep pushing out growth.
@vvvelo I don’t have one but it’s beautiful.
@kscape I did some pruning to it recently, and it is shooting new babies… but as soon as the stem grows taller it dries somewhere in the middle and rot. This is a mother plant that I bout some time ago and I still can’t restore it to a nice condition. I don’t really understand what does it want! 🤷🏼‍♂️ I have a lot of babies of this plant that I propagated from leaves, cuz it’s very easy. This main plant does not want to grow bigger . I have 3 pots with this plant. All plants in those pots have different style of growing lol. See the pics below
@kscape I was cleaning under my succulents shelf and found these Mirinae leaves that are already having roots and a baby 🤩🤩
@vvvelo oh wow. I really don’t know what it could be. Maybe because it’s hanging and somehow the stems “lose circulation” so maybe they’re not getting the right amount of water and they die off?

This sounds odd but maybe giving it some type of support to avoid them hanging? I honestly can’t think of another reason why they’re not growing…

Look at those props!! I need some 👀🤣🌱
@kscape I wonder if it is possible to send Mirinae leaves in a regular envelope by mail
