As a succulent plant, Crassula mesembrianthoides is very easy to burst the pot, and it is very easy to grow and survive. Therefore, it is not difficult to propagate, and there are many kinds of propagation methods, such as cutting, leaf transplanting, splitting, sowing, and beheading propagation. The following sorts out the propagation methods of Crassula mesembrianthoides.
Crassula mesembrianthoides is very social, and cutting is its main method of propagation. First, cut off the strong branches at the top of the plant, and put the branches in the ventilated place to dry, until the wounds dry, insert them into the moist basin soil, and wait for roots.
The first step of the leaf insertion propagation method of Crassula mesembrianthoides is to select the leaves of the crassula mesembrianthoides leaf, which must be full and healthy and broken off. The leaves of the crassula mesembrianthoides leaf are very tough and not very easy to break off. When breaking off, pay attention to, close to the axil of the leaf, slowly break along the curve of the connecting part. Break off the whole leaf, don't hurt the growth point on the leaf. The next is to break off the leaves placed on the basin soil, this method of success rate is high.
Crassula mesembrianthoides can also be branched in addition to branches and leaves. The survival rate of branch division propagation of Crassula mesembrianthoides was higher than that of branching and leaf interplanting.
Crassula mesembrianthoides are vigorous growers, very prone to bursting and filling up over your little pot. At this point, you can trim it and cut it into the shape you want. You can also find some young shoots at the root of the plant. Pull up the seedlings, planted into the pot, you can survive. Pay attention to the newly planted seedlings, to every 3 to 4 days to water, to prevent the root system from water stains.
For the unproductive and the slightly discomfited Crassula mesembrianthoides, beheading propagation method of Crassula mesembrianthoides can be used to make the plant look better. Cutting, such as the wound to dry, inserted into the pot, every 3 to 4 days of watering, waiting for the root.
