How to propagate and care for Echeveria Simonoasa

Echeveria Simonoasa is a succulent variety that is easy to feed, very adaptable and easy to reproduce. What are the propagation methods of Echeveria Simonoasa? Generally, domestic potted plants are used for cutting and plant division, both of which are suitable for spring and autumn. After propagtion, it also needs reasonable maintenance, so as to thrive.

Two Propagation Methods of Echeveria Simonoasa

1. Cutting propagation

Blade insertion method

Cutting propagation of echeveria simonoasa is more suitable in the spring and autumn. The temperature at this time is more appropriate, cutting the survival rate is higher. Healthy thick leaves were selected from the mother plant of The Echeveria Simonoasa and placed in a cool, well-ventilated place to dry the wound. The leaves were then squared or placed at an inclined position on the slightly moist basin-soil. After a while, they took root and grew new buds.

Cutting head cuttings

Beheading destroys the shape of the mother plant, but it can also reshape the plant, turning the single-headed Echeveria Simonoasa into a multi-headed one. Cut the stem of the Echeveria Simonoasa plant straight away, leaving the base of the root and a few leaves, and then grow out again. And cut down the branches and leaves, the bottom of the leaves removed first, and then dry the wound, finally cuttings into the basin soil, after a period of time will also root.

2. Plant separation and propagation

It is better to breed in separate plants every spring when the basin is changed, so that you can kill two birds with one stone. Two clusters of small plants next to the old Echeveria Simonoasa plant were separated. After the wound was dried, the small plants were buried in the appropriate pot soil. Generally, sandy loam with a loose city appearance is more suitable for the growth of the plants. You'll get used to the new soil in a week or two. Now that you know the breeding methods of Echeveria Simonoasa, let's look at the curing techniques.

Echeveria Simonoasa Care

1. Proper soil

Echeveria Simonoasa likes sandy soil with good drainage and permeability. When preparing the soil, peat, vermiculite and perlite can be mixed evenly, and proper bone powder can also be added as basal fertilizer. This not only keeps the loose soil matrix, but also provides enough fertility for the growth of plants.

2. Water properly

Echeveria Simonoasa plants contain a lot of water, which tends to rot in wet conditions, so it is important not to overwater. In spring and autumn, it's usually watered every 10 days. If the temperature is above 35℃ in summer and below 5℃ in winter, water should be temporarily stopped until the temperature is suitable.

3. The light is good

Echeveria Simonoasa needs plenty of light as it grows. The more abundant the light, the greater the temperature difference between day and night, the better the shape of the plants and the color of the leaves. Echeveria Simonoasa can be completely placed outside for curing at the right temperature to ensure adequate lighting.

4. Control the temperature

The optimum temperature for the growth of Echeveria Simonoasa is between 18 ℃ and 25℃. In summer, if the temperature is too high, proper shade should be used for ventilation, and water mist can be sprayed around the pot to cool down and moisturize. In winter time we must ensure the indoor temperature in 5℃ above, otherwise it will be frostbite freeze to death.
