How to propagate Haworthia Truncata

Truncata Haworthia, a highly valued ornamental succulent, needs to be carefully tended throughout the year when it is planted. Now let’s look at the propagation methods of the Haworthia Truncata.

1. Haworthia Truncata division propagation

The haworthia truncata division can be arranged in the spring. When the young plants are removed and dried for a week or so. After the wounds are dried, they are planted in the pots, and watered appropriately.

2. Haworthia Truncata leaf insertion propagation

During the growth stage of truncata Haworthia, the strong fleshy leaves with a little lignification at the base can be cut and left to dry in a cool place for 2-3 days.

The roots are inserted into a mixture of perlite and vermiculite and kept in a certain amount of humidity for 3 to 5 weeks.

3. propagation root insertion propagation

The robust roots of propagation were removed from the base of the plant and buried in the soil, exposing the surface of the soil for about one centimeter, and the top of the plant would sprout into a new plant.

You can pull vigorous plants with well-developed roots out of the soil a little and cut them off about a centimeter below the root stem.

Turn the plant over to dry the wound and plant it again. The remaining roots remain in the soil and will germinate.

4. Haworthia Truncata sowing propagation

Seeds were produced by artificial pollination, and the seeds of the Haworthia Truncata were collected and planted at any time when they were mature. After sowing, the basin surface was covered with glass and preserved for 7 to 10 days.

After sowing and during the seedling stage, use the "shade irrigation" method to water, so as not to flush out the seeds and flush out the young plants.
