- Moisten the soil and carefully remove each offset from the parent plant. Then allow both the offsets and parent plant to callus before replanting.
- Fill a small pot with propagating soil, leveling it off about a half inch from the brim.
- Repot the seedlings, waiting three or four days to water them.
Moreover, which succulents produce the most offsets?
I will start with Sempervivums as they are one of the most prolific for producing offsets. One plant can grow upwards of 10 offsets each year, and they are extremely easy to propagate, often growing roots while still attached to the main plant.
Secondly, what do you do with succulent offshoots?
You can carefully remove the pups and offshoots, place them in a suitable potting mix and start a new plant that way. Removing offshoots from the mother plant improves its health by refocusing energy to the growth of the main plant instead of supporting its pups.
How do you replant offshoots?
Take the plantlets and arrange them on the surface of the compost. Give each plantlet its own growing space in the pot and keep the compost moist by watering from below. Once the plants start growing, roots will form and you can repot each one of the plantlets to their own little pot.
Cover one-third to one-half of the base with the medium or enough so the offset doesn’t fall over. Place the pup in indirect, but bright, sunlight and keep the medium lightly moist. Most cacti root in four to six weeks but some can take months.
