Hi friend! Sorry you’re having a rough time. I thought I’d show you the little propagation setup I have going. I accidentally knocked a couple leaves off my Graptosedum “California Sunset,” so I decided to try my hand at propagating, using a leftover mini pot from when I transplanted my Crassula rupestris.
I was thrilled when they started rooting, but worried since winter break was coming up, and I knew that propagating succulents needed to be watered more often than well established ones. Then, I discovered the little pot I had used fit perfectly into a small paper cup, and ding! a lightbulb went off in my head.
I filled the cup partway with water, then placed the pot in. The water wasn’t high enough to reach the top, but as it evaporated, it would keep the soil hydrated. To my delight, it worked beautifully! I came back to find happy little sprouts, much bigger than they were when I left. I decided to keep the rig as it was, since it seemed to work so well.
Top picture shows the babies themselves (aren’t they adorable? I’m such a proud momma). Second picture shows how the setup works. Third shows the babies with the parent plant they came from (I know, I desperately need to transplant it, I will be doing that very soon. Also, it was stretched out when I got it. I’m guessing it was kept in the dark during shipping. Apparently, Walmart isn’t the most informed when it comes to succulent care).
Hope you enjoyed my pics! I’m very proud of my babies, so I’m always happy to show them off ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪Aw they are so cute!!❤ that’s an awesome way to propagate, I’ve never though of that! Glad ur props and mama plant are doing well!! They’re beautiful! Thank you so much for submitting lovely 🌿💕
