Spring is the ideal time of year to propagate and split your succulents. If you follow these tips for caring for your succulents before the growing season you will be rewarded not only with healthier plants but with some new succulent plants as well!
CARING FOR YOUR SUCCULENTS IN THE SPRING
IT’S EASY TO PROPAGATE SUCCULENTS!
One of of the many cool things about succulents is how easy they are to propagate. For most succulent plants each leaf has the potential to become a new plant, so you can go from owning just one succulent to a dozen after just one round of propagation.
I’m an amateur succulent grower, so I reached out to some knowledgeable friends before I started my spring succulent care this year. I received advice from a church friend who is a member of the Michigan Succulent Society, and from another friend who runs her own succulent business.
Succulents are a very beginner-friendly houseplant since they require so little attention. Even the process of propagating new plants is pretty hands-off. Even though you need only put in a little effort, you will feel so proud once you see those baby plants begin to grow!
