My string of pearls nearly died entirely. I don’t know what was going on with it, but I’m trying to save it now. I took what few strands were still good and put them in two little pots and put the pots in different rooms to see if they’d fare better in different areas. One of them clearly is doing better than the other, so I’m sorta figuring it out. Hopefully I can save the one in the photo above since that’s the one that’s doing better.
When we first moved into this house a friend gave me a succulent as a house warming gift. It was technically three succulents in one pot and since then it grew all over the place and looked kinda crazy. After reading a lot about propagating succulents I figured I’d try it out and so far it’s looking really good! I took this photo a couple weeks ago and the little leaflet thingies have gotten much bigger! The leaves are from the old plant and the little nubbins are the new growth. I let the leaves callous for several weeks and saw the roots come out and then I put them on top of the soil and gave it some water. The out of focus top part is from one of the original plants, which I let callous and root out as well before sticking it back in the soil to grow again.
I’m very tempted to do this now with my jade plant as well.
Has anyone propagated succulents before? I’m amazed it takes so long for things to happen like the callousing, but it is rather neat to see that it’s all working. Also, anyone have tips for string of pearls plants?
