All the baby succulents

succulent propagation

It's been a couple of weeks since my last succulent propagation update, so I figured I should share what's happening! As you can see, I have lots of succulent leaves that have sprouted babies and even more that have started rooting. By the end of summer, I should have a bunch of babies ready to sell or swap!!

So far, the Graptosedum (Vera Higgins) succulents are doing great!  These are the baby succulents I inherited when I purchased a larger graptosedum earlier this month. Unfortunately, the bulk of my leaves I started propagating haven't sprouted roots or babies yet. That is... except for the gratosedum!  This past week I rescued a pot of Continue Reading
