Lift the Pup Away
Insert the blade of the handheld spade at an angle underneath the rooted offshoot. Carefully pry it loose from the soil and remove it. Fill in the hole left by the offshoot to protect the parent plant’s roots.
Herein, what do you do with haworthia babies?
Beside above, does haworthia need sunlight?
Although some Haworthia species can be found in full, bright sun, many live in more protected spots and therefore are adapted to thrive in partial shade (though few look their best without at least some direct sun or bright light). This makes Haworthias well adapted to lower light conditions found in homes.
Does haworthia bloom?
Yes, this is a flowering houseplant. The flowers will normally appear in Summer months on the end of a long stem (inflorescence) if they’ve been treated well during the year.
As stated, simply a matter of gently removing the pups from the mother plant, letting the roots heal for a few days, and potting separately. I did this with great success on this Haworthia, more than once.
Offset Haworthia Propagation
Use a sharp knife or shears to remove the offset as close to the mother plant as possible. Include as many roots as possible when making the cut. Allow the plantlets to dry before watering or withhold water for the first few days after potting.
Soil. Use a cactus mix or very fast-draining potting soil. Many growers warn that mixing potting soil with sand clogs up the pores so the soil doesn’t drain as well, so sand should be avoided. Instead, mix with perlite, aquarium gravel, or pumice.
Haworthias are not monocarpic so they do not die after flowering. … While all monocarpic succulents die after flowering, they do spawn new plants before they bloom.
Soil: Once the stems have calloused, fill a shallow tray with well-draining cactus/succulent soil and place the cuttings on top. Within a few weeks, roots and tiny plants will begin to grow from the base of the cuttings. … Allow your propagated succulents to take root, then they can be replanted as desired.
How big should the succulent pup be before removing it? The ideal time to remove a succulent pup from the stem is once it is about 1″ (2.5cm) in size, or big enough that you can hold it easily without smashing it.
As a rule, succulent plants do not mind crowding whether the plants are grouped in one container or are alone and fully filled out in the container. Transplanting a plant that has filled its container will generally allow the plant to experience a new spurt of growth.
