Easiness of propagating succulents - drought resistant plants...

Ultra extremely easy... you just pick a piece, without roots, simply piece of the branch and stick it into the soil. No watering is needed. The speed of growth depends on the kind - on the picture, you can see: tiny pieces planted on 19th of August (L) and same plants today (R), which is after one month. Two of them almost tripled its size, rest starts to get wider by sprouting new branches. That is ootdoor.

On the windowsill, indoor, little leaf of that lovely plant fell on the soil.

Can you see growing roots and new leaves?
By the way - I forgot its name, do you know it?

Hi Ewa, thanks for showing us what wonderful plants the sedums are. I especially like how they don't even need the gardener, they root where they touch the earth, what more can you ask of a plant? ;->

Hi Ewa, succulents are such fascinating plants!

I stuck some sedum cuttings from a client's plant into my garden a couple of weeks ago. I hope there's enough time for them to root before the first frost!

Hi Ewa.

How great that your garden still grow busily at this time of the year.

I guess it gets dark around the same time here in Norway and in Poland now, so close to September 21st when days and nights are the same.

This is one of the reasons I love succulents Ewa. They are so easy. I rarely know the species becasue most are sold as "succulent".

I love these, but here in New Orleans it is too moist and humid for the easiness of propating them LOL. They often get too wet and rot. But I have one Burrows Tail that I have nursed along, and it is very pretty.

Hi Ewa,
succulents are really interesting plants. With their stunning rosettes in a variety of juicy colours, tender succulents are perfect for pots—and easy-care, too. You want to extent your collections. You are hooked:)
Cheers Gisela

This week (when it was just 2 degrees above zero F for several nights) I went in my barn to check on some large stored pots of Japanese maple trees. I approached them and thought, "What are those weeds growing on the soil surface of the pots?" and got closer and guess what? Sedums! From little bits that must have fallen inside the rims who knows when or from where. Easy, yes, and even in deep cold they are GROWING.
