The propagation process is simple. Just snip off the plant part you want to use for propagation with a clean scissor and let it callous for a couple of days at a warm dry place. Place the cuttings on the top of the soil medium and keep misting 5 to 6 times a day for the first few days.
Hereof, how do you propagate a spoon plant?
To propagate “Copper Spoons” from leaves, twist a leaf from the mother plant. Be sure that none of the leaf remains on the stem, or you will have a smaller chance of success. Allow the leaf to dry out for several days so that the end callouses over, and then place on well-draining soil.
Also to know is, how do you propagate Desert surprise?
Take your cuttings in early spring, using a pair of sharp garden shears to cut a few strong green shoots off of the kalanchoe, six to eight inches long. Strip the leaves off of the bottom three inches of the cutting. You should allow the cuttings to dry on the counter for around three days to let the cut side heal up.
How do you care for copper spoon succulents?
Water moderately from fall to winter when the growth is most active. Reduce watering during the hottest summer months when the plants are mostly dormant and winter when the growth slows down significantly. Let the soil surface dry out between waterings. Watch the fleshy leaves for signs of water distress.
Like most succulents these plants like to let their soil go dry in between waterings especially if placed in more shaded and cooler areas. Do not allow the roots to sit in soggy soil for too long, as they can lead to root rot.
To propagate new Panda plants, cut leaves in the spring or summer. Let leaves dry for a week before putting them in a container. Place the cuttings in a pot with perlite mix or sandy soil. They should take root in about four weeks.
Topsy Turvy Echeveria Care
Partial to full sun, and soil that is coarse or sandy and that drains very well are essential. Once you have your Topsy Turvy in the ground or a container, water it whenever the soil dries out completely, which won’t be that often. This is only necessary during the growing season.
