Sunrise Succulent can propagate mainly by sowing and cutting. The temperature should be controlled between 15 ℃ and 20℃, and the soil containing leaf rot and sand should be selected for propagation. When we apply sowing propagation it is necessary to soak the seeds in hot water for 4 ~ 5 hours first, keep the soil moist. When we apply the cutting propagation of Sunrise Succulent, it is necessary to choose 1 ~ 2 years of life, healthy branches.
When we apply the sowing propagation of Sunrise Succulent, sunrise Succulent's seeds need to be collected in the fall as the plants mature, screened for those with smooth skin and free of pests and diseases. Rub the skin off, rinse and dry. Seed can be placed directly on the soil surface or treated with a sprout process.
Soak the seeds in hot water for 4-5 hours before planting them in a mixture of leaf rot and gravel. Make sure the seeds are 2 to 3 cm apart. Cover with a thin layer of soil, compaction the soil, and place in a cool, ventilated place to grow.
The optimal cutting time of Sunrise succulent was in spring, and the temperature was controlled between 10 ℃ and 18℃, which could greatly improve the survival rate of the plant. For the sunrise succulent leaf inserts, choose young, plump, thick leaves and cut them under the axils, leaving the petioles intact.
After the leaves of Sunrise Succulent for cutting propagation are cut, they need to be disinfected with carbendazim and placed in a cool, ventilated place to dry. Insert the leaves vertically into the soil containing vermiculite and sandy soil, making sure they are 1/2 the length of the leaves, and cover the soil with a fine layer of soil.
After the sunrise succulent leaves for cutting propagation are inserted, water once to ensure that the water can permeate to the bottom of the soil. Place the leaves in a cool astigmatism environment for cultivation. Wait until the leaves grow for 2-3 days, water again to ensure that the soil is moist.
After the leaves of Sunrise succulent for cutting propagation have taken root and sprouted, they should be moved to a sunny environment for cultivation to promote the photosynthesis of the plants and facilitate the growth of the branches. A small amount of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizer should be applied. When the plants grow in the fall, phosphorus and potassium compound fertilizer and potassium dihydrogen phosphate solution should be applied.
