How To Propagate Jelly Bean Plants (Sedum Rubrotinctum) These plants easily propagate from leaf or stem cuttings. They root easily and often root on their own without any help. The leaves are quite fragile and fall off easily when handled or when you brush against the plant.
Similarly, how do I save my succulents from Jelly Beans?
Solution: Increase watering. The plant should perk up almost immediately after a good watering. Water thoroughly and give the plant a good drink then wait until the soil is dry before watering again. From my experience with Jelly Bean plants, they like to be watered thoroughly and then dry out in between waterings.
Furthermore, how do you cut a jelly bean plant?
How fast do jelly bean plants grow?
Jelly bean succulents are slow-growing and don’t mind being pot bound. As such, they do not require frequent repotting and can usually do well in the same container for up to two years.
For example, in the summer months, your Jelly Beans should be watered deeply once every 7-10 days, sometimes more during a heatwave. In Spring and Fall, where the temperature cools down, your watering should be cut back to once every 10-14 days.
Grow the sedum jelly bean plant in containers or plant it in the ground. Those in areas with cold winters might grow it as an annual or dig up and transplant into pots in autumn. Sedum is easy to plant, in most cases burying a stem is all you need to get it started. Avoid watering for a week or two after planting.
Most succulents will grow “leggy” if they don’t get enough light. But those succulents that change colors when stressed are usually more light sensitive than others. Their reaction can be quick, putting out etiolated “growth” in a mere few days.
