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!! I've been sharing some of my more successful propagation efforts. But that doesn't mean that all of my Continue Reading

It's been 12 days since I started the succulent propagation project. 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.
