Water Prop - Crested Pup! Now what?
I’m so excited! It looks like this leaf propagation gave me a Crested Cubic Frost! I’ve had multiple pups on a leaf, but this is my first crested!

I’ve never transferred a water prop to soil. Is there anything different than transferring any other leaf prop since she was a #waterbirth?

It took exactly 1 1/2 months to get here.

@Hypsie it looks great!! I'd place it on the soil where you want it and just put a sprinkle of moist soil over the roots. Keep an eye on it for the next few days while the roots take to the soil.

Good luck!πŸ’š
Aww these are so tiny, so cute! 😍 Would be great to see how it develops! 🌱 #PropagationStation
@YveO πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ It’s my first water to soil prop. Please send green vibes! πŸ’šπŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§ͺ
How do you get the roots so long?!?
@Hypsie Nevermind my previous question…what a dayπŸ™„
@Yeeha234 No worries! Water roots grow much faster than dirt roots, so this was a great question.
@sarahsalith Thank you! That’s pretty much what I did. I know sometimes they don’t transfer from water to soil well. Any tips are greatly appreciated!
@vvvelo How did your water props transfer? Any tips? I lm really hoping this one makes it in soil!
@Hypsie i water them a little bit every couple of days.
@vvvelo So same as regular soil props, or is there anything you do differently?
cute name for a cute plant πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯Ί
@Hypsie oh if you were propagating plants in water and then transferred them to soil - then I water them a little bit every other day. Just to keep soil slightly moist. I’m trying to imitate wet environment for them, just to let roots to develop more in the soil. I hope it make sense.
@vvvelo That makes a lot of sense! Thanks!
