Trailing And Hanging Succulents Care And Propagation How To


Hey, everybody, it’s! Claire, and welcome back to succulent fanclub today. I’m going to be talking you through all about trailing succulents, so ones that do really well in hanging baskets or that sort of appear out the size of your succulent arrangements. I’m going to be showing you different varieties that do this and how to propagate those whether you or not. You’ve got cutting or a leaf and some general care requirements just related to trailing succulents, so the first trailing succulent aren’t to talk to you about. It’s a really popular One called donkey tail or Burrough’s Tail. My one here, it’s hard quite a hard life. It’s been knocked off many times. You can see there at the bottom. That’s actually all the new growth just for this summer, which been it’s been a couple of months already. The leaves do knock off really easily and you can see here. You can actually just nip those whole branches off. Just take the whole branch off and remove all the leaves. I haven’t, but you could now what I do is take all those leaves, and I actually put them back into the top of the soil. So then what I get is all these little baby donkey tails growing out the top, and that gives so much fuller arrangement. Donkey tails do like full Sun as well and the more Sun. The better really, but you can also see that my one is really quite thirsty. It could do with a drink. You can tell that because the little leaves almost shriveled like little raisins, but seen as I’ll give it a really good watering, same as you dwarfs or any other succulent, it should clump up and to do really well. So if your pot of donkey’s tail is already quite full, you could put the broken off leaves or the section you’ve cut off into a tray to be propagated. These ones are about two years old. They are quite slow growing, but they are in a cooler conservatory that doesn’t get a lot of sunlight. So if you’re looking for more information about propagating in this way, not necessarily with trading succulents. Check out my other video. I’ll post at the end of this one. So if you like you more rosette succulents. This one is a ghost plant, which they’re quite often called or a grape. Toba, Thailand, para guy! Ah, nice! I’ve said that correctly from Mexico and you can see that they do trail quite far, depending on conditions and really easy to propagate from leaves again. Our knock the leaves off all the time. I pop them in the top, and they grow so quickly and so easily and you can see there. There’s lots of little babies coming out. You can’t easily. If they trail too far, just cut them down and use the leaves propagation. This is the same plan, which again is in my back conservatory, which is cooler and you can see because they don’t get as much sunlight. It’s actually a much bigger rosette, whereas the other ones get a lot more, so a lot drier and they just self propagate as well when the leaves drop off and strange enough. These ghost plants are actually first. Hardy as well so they can live outside in the winter in a sheltered area. Okay, and my other succulents is a string of nickels, which is native to very tropical areas and you can see its quite thin leaves, so it doesn’t need full sunlight all the time and mine actually has lots of aerial roots because I don’t water it very often and those area recently perfect for further propagation, and you can do this with string of bananas, string of pearls, any of those popular plants and all of those roots will take into the soil. So where I push it down there that little section will root and it will grow another plant. So if you get a cutting of string of pearls or say, string of nickel’s, string of dime string string of turtles. All you do is lay that string on top of your well draining soil, Leave it alone and it will grow roots and then it will start to grow a new plant. So if you just nip a little bit off like that, so maybe mines trail too far on it, a bit bushier and lay it in the top and where all those little nodes are. It will now grow a new plant and just like one pearl from string of pearls. The will root separately on their own and grow more plants. Another one. My favorites is this sedum. Kivar to them now. I’ve never actually had to propagate one of these from a leaf because they just grow out the stem and they really never stop growing and some of them trails some of them bunch up and have this beautiful green blue color to them, and they really are very rewarding. This is a sedum. Adolphe, the eye and you can see. It’s got really nice two-tone color’s! It is a bit trailing again. It depends on how much? Sun it gets. Mine gets quite a lot of intense Sun. It still is trailing. Some people do think they’re stretching, but they’re not, and these propagate really easily from leaves. So you just knock off a leaf, drop it into the pot and more grow, and I’ve also got lots growing from the stem, and this is great, too very a Fred Ives from Mexico and they do love the sunshine, the more sunshine they get again, the less they trail. I only have one at the moment, but you can see it’s beautiful. It makes a massive rosette and that are really easy to propagate from leaves. Here’s well not. I’ve knocked off as you can see. It’s got loads and loads of roots so really nice one to provide that beautiful purple color to your trading arrangements. Now this next plan. I think is a sedum. Rhuebottom tone, also known as a jelly bean plan or pork and beans. This one has had a bit of an issue with many bugs. And if you have the same kind of thing, white, fluffy things. Check out my video about meanie bugs and how to get rid of them again. You could nip off the piece. If it’s trading and then you just pull off the little beans and lay them on the top of the soil. You see in the background? There there’s actually another jelly bean plant. That’s not as stretched and they propagate really easily, and they make a nice, full arrangement as well. So very super easy, nice colour. So I hope this video has given you some good ideas about what you could put into your trading hanging baskets and how to make them look really nice and thick and full and healthy.
