Money tree, crassula, fat woman, tree of life - these are how many names an unpretentious succulent with fleshy oblong leaves has. It was his human rumor endowed with the ability to bring happiness to the house and increase well-being. You will be surprised to learn how easy it is to propagate succulents. With this unique method, you can even breed your favorite flowers on an industrial scale.
To implement the idea you will need:
- leaves from succulent
- empty plastic bottle
- soldering iron or burner
- empty flower pots and suitable substrate (in sufficient quantity)
We mark the bottle and make holes without touching the bottom and bottom.
We prepare the planting material. The size of the holes should be sufficient to insert oblong-shaped leaves into them.
We proceed directly to the "disembarkation". To do this, insert the leaves into the holes with the break point inside. Pour water into the bottom of the bottle, close the neck with a lid.
It is important that the bottle is in a well-lit place. The presence of water at the bottom of the bottle is sufficient to create a microclimate that is favorable for root formation inside.
The result is clearly visible after 20 days. By this time, almost all the leaves have released roots, and some have even sprouted.
After another week, sprouts appear on almost every leaf. The bottle is now unnecessary.
Powerful sprouts have a well-developed root system and are not deprived of nutrition from the donor leaf.
It remains to plant the sprouts. To do this, cover the bottom of the flower pot with paper rolled in several layers, and then fill it with earth. We lay the sheet with the sprout with the roots down and lightly press down. At the initial stage, we water the flowers from a spray bottle. Saplings grow quickly, which allows you to create a self-sufficient green corner at home, and, if desired, provide friends and acquaintances with unpretentious flowers.
