Succulents cultivation


These operations must be performed between May and August, on dry days and at temperatures above twenty degrees.
The simplest way to obtain new plants from a succulent plant is by multiplication by cutting, cutting a part of the stem or a leaf with a razor blade and rooting the cuttings in a special compound after having them healed in the air in a warm place and dry.
Propagation can also take place by sowing. When the fruits are close to maturation they must be covered with a nylon net to prevent the seeds from falling and dispersing, or they must be removed with tweezers and laid for a day on a sheet of absorbent paper to then extract the seeds.
The multiplication of succulent plants can also be done by grafting by joining the upper part of one plant with the lower part of another.
