Understanding Pruning

  • Pruning is the process of removing dead or damaged leaves, stems, or flowers to encourage healthy growth

  • Identify any dead or yellowing leaves and carefully remove them at the base using your scissors or shears.

  • Trim leggy or elongated stems to promote a more compact and bushy growth habit.

  • Pinch off the tops of stems to encourage branching and a fuller appearance.

Propating through stem cutting

  • Succulents are simple plants, and their propagation is even simpler

  • Select healthy stems for propagation. Ensure the cutting is at least a couple of inches long with several leaves.

  • Use a clean, sharp knife or scissors to cut the stem just below a leaf node.

  • Place it 1-2 inches deep in a mix of sand and cocopeat. Water it once a week.

  • In about 4-6 weeks the cutting will start producing roots and Voila! you have another new plant.

Leaf Propagation

  • Choose plump, healthy leaves from your succulent, ensuring they are fully intact without any signs of damage or disease.

  • Gently twist the leaves off the stem, ensuring a clean break.

  • Gently twist the leaves off the stem, ensuring a clean break.

  • Create a shallow indentation in the soil using your finger or a tool, providing a cozy spot for the succulent leaf to nestle.

  • Position your succulent leaf in a bright, indirect light spot to encourage the development of roots and new plantlets.

  • As your propagated succulent establishes itself, observe the emergence of new growth from the base of the leaf.
