This is an update on the growth of my succulent collection that I have been nurturing since I got back from Berlin a couple of months ago. By now I have a lovely collection of 20 odd little plants plus some experiments with propagation from the original ones. I love looking at in their tender early growth. These new ones are developing their own small roots so will be planted in soil over the summer.
The most developed and resilient succulent I have is a crassula ovata, quite a common indoor plant, native of Southern Africa, also known as jade plant of money plant.
Last month I started some propagation with leaves taken from the mother plant and by now I can start seeing most of these detached leaves are developing small roots and micro rosettes. I so much look forward to seeing if I can generate some new plants with the same strenght and the same shades of colours as the one that has survived against all odds over the past couple of years.
I also managed to have propagation from a plant I bought recently but was already outgrowing its original pot. This haworthia cymbiformis is really beautiful with its translucent pulpy leaves and it is a marvel I can already start having cute smaller autonomous cuttings from the original cluster. I feel like a proud dad!
