To grow Crassula perforata from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a leaf from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
In this way, can you propagate Crassula?
Propagating Crassula Perforata
The easiest and quickest way to propagate these plants is through stem cuttings. They can be propagated from leaves, but I find the process trickier and less foolproof than using stem cuttings.
Beside this, how do you propagate a string from leaves?
Like most other succulents, the string of buttons is easy to propagate from the offshoots that grow from the mother plant (often referred to as pups) or from cuttings. To propagate from cuttings, simply twist off a healthy leaf from the mother plant. Make sure you get the whole leaf and not just a part.
How do you propagate Crassula Marnieriana?
Take a cutting from your main plant and leave to dry/callous for approx. 3 days in a shady spot – this ensures the cutting doesn’t rot when placed into it’s new pot. Once dried, fill a pot with a mix of cactus soil and sand, and simply stick the end of the cutting directly into the compost and leave it to root.
Most succulents can be propagated in water. You can grow roots from healthy single leaves or, if you have a stretched out succulent, you can take stem cuttings and root those.
Jade plants can be propagated from stem or leaf cuttings. Keep in mind that it takes it takes a while to get a nice sized jade plant from leaf cuttings. So, if you want to get a head start, and don’t want to wait so long, then I recommend propagating jade plant stem cuttings instead of the leaves.
Is Crassula perforata toxic to cats and dogs? Nope! According to the ASPCA, the string of buttons is non-toxic to cats and dogs.
The most common reason for the Crassula perforata to start dying is root rot. The root rot usually develops from prolonged exposure to standing water. It is fine to pour lots of water on a String of Buttons but it is essential that it quickly and thoroughly drains through the bottom of your container.
Allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again. Being a succulent, Crassula ovata can go a long time without water – but it grows best with water when growing. Feed with a balanced liquid feed 2 or 3 times during the growing season from late spring to late summer.
To grow “Money Tree” from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
Propagate String of Turtles in Water
Use a pair of clean, sharp scissors to snip off a few cuttings just below a node (where leaves and roots grow out of the main stem). Stick the base of the cutting into a jar of water. Remove any leaves that end of being under the water.
