Hi, my gardening! Angels, welcome back to my channel if you are new here. I am Jess and today. I want to talk to you about propagating echeveria. Lola’s now there’s a few specifics here that I have learned with Echeveria Lola’s that I wanted to go over, but before I do that. If you are interested in learning about succulent propagation, I have an online, succulent propagation course that’s available to you guys, and I would love for you guys to take it if you can because I think there’s a lot of information in there, I have specifically tailored it to each individual’s climate, and so I think you’re going to learn a lot about how you should specifically grow succulents in comparison to other places. And so if you ever move, this information will be helpful because each climate is a little bit different and it’s hard for me to get into visualize through these videos, so I do have that class and we have a Facebook group and it’s really fun and we share our photos of our succulents propagating, and I’m available to you to answer any questions that you guys have so. If you’re interested in learning a little bit more about succulent propagation, you can go check out that class down below. I will have a link into the description box and in the comments feel free to go give that a click. I would love for you guys to join now before we go on to talk about the Lolas. If you have not already, please subscribe to my channel. I don’t want you guys to miss any of the goodies that I have coming up this year and please give this video a big thumbs up. If you enjoyed it or learn something, alright, so first thing, and this kind of goes for all succulents, but the first thing that you want to do before you try to propagate a succulent is water it. I typically go with about five days three to five days before I want to pull leaves or take a cutting or try to propagate it. And anyway, I try to give it about a week’s worth of time to absorb that water. This is just going to make your succulent the healthiest that it can be before you propagate it and it’s going to fill up those leaves with water and nutrients, and that’s what’s going to be promoting the growth on your new succulent, and so that’s really important to have a nice, full, succulent, So please water it before you try if you it will probably still work just fine, but I think the watering before kind of gives it an extra little kick start before you have to let it be on. It’s own, okay, so this is an echo very low. Lola, they are one of my absolute favorite succulents. They’re super popular. One of the things I do want to mention, and I’m not actually sure if I can marry. Lola’s fall under this category. But just something for you guys to all be aware, is there? Are propagation prohibited in certain varieties of plants that people have patented? And so if your succulent has that on the take that there is propagation prohibited. Please keep that in mind. You are not allowed to propagate it and to sell it for a profit, you can propagate it, however, for your personal enjoyment, which is what? I do with my succulents. I don’t sell them, but I do like to teach you guys how to propagate them, because I know that that can be a struggle and for your own personal use. I think this is something handy to know, so I have tried to propagate Lolas forever. And I have come up empty-handed every single time now. I think I live in a very specific situation. Where maybe my climate see not correct, but I have tried growing them from leaf so many times. This one is just dead, so I can probably throw him away and I can get them to grow nice roots. Both of these have amazing roots on them, but they won’t grow anything else. They won’t grow a single leaf now. I did see today in my garden when I was prepping for this video that I have a really tiny little baby, so I have this baby succulent, and it has three leaves, and I’m super excited, but I’m not very hopeful because I have always had issues with my Lolas. However, I did discover the best way to propagate. My Lolas has been by cutting now. I have three Lolas that I’m going to cut today to kind of show you how I do it. And then I have three that. I cut must have been in June. So about two months ago that I’ve grown a ton of babies on them and I’ll give you a good close up of these because these are beautiful right now. And so once those babies get to be about the size of a quarter or about this big. I am going to cut them off kind of like how I will these main ones today, and then I’ll plant those back in soil and reroute them. So I’m really excited to share this with you guys. If you need more specific, detailed instructions on how to do it, keep watching, but otherwise that’s essentially the gist great, so ignore the chords and everything that’s going on right now, But these are my six Lolas that I wanted to show you today now. These are the three that. I’m going to be cutting and propagating from you can see how awesome these are. They just have tons of layers and tons of leaves. They almost get this lavender mint green color to them when they get a little bit more. Sun stressed they get really pretty pink edges, this one. I believe has that a little bit that you can see here. Are those really pretty edges? So this is one of the cuttings you can see where? I removed the top a few months ago, but I want to say that’s three babies. The one on the right kind of looks like one or maybe crusted. Even here’s another one. These ones are just too perfect, little rosette babies and right. There is where the cutting came from and then this one kind of the same thing with the first one. There’s that little leaf, baby, but it has one two three and this second one here kind of looks crusted as well, but I would say these are doing amazing. These ones are almost to the size that I would consider cutting them off. Andry rooting them. I might just let them grow a little bit longer. I probably will remove this leaf to let it grow in lets. Just do that now. I like to do this when I’m propagating my succulents because I like to keep them on to the root base as long as possible just to give them all those nutrients. No, that guy is just barely hanging on, but he’s on there. Something does leave in me and then I can save this leaf. It probably won’t do anything, but I’ll save it now. I wanted to show you the tops of these because this is the whole point is to get more of them. Not just make babies. So this is the top of one. Here’s the other one. This is a really good shot because you can see that mint green and the lavender in between. And then this one here. I don’t quite understand why this one’s a lighter green. Maybe it’s a different variety, but this is that other top now this tray. I don’t think it’s enough water, so I think they’re a little stressed, but I’m really excited, so let’s cut off these and I’ll show you what I do specifically. All right, so this? Lola, here is kind of atole ated, Which means it’s a little stretched out. Ideally, you want all the leaves to be really stacked close to each other. This one has a little bit of space like that. You can kind of see has quite a bit of space now. I’m going to be removing a few leaves around here, And then I will be cutting it with my knife now. I just have a clean, sharp knife. I don’t need to sterilize that or anything. I’ve never sterilized. It and it’s worked fine, but I’m going to remove a little space, so I’m not cutting the leaves, and then I’ll remove a few from the base, so I’m gonna go right here now here would be a natural spot to cut, just because there’s a lot of space, but I think that’s almost a little bit too short of a top for me, so let’s go around right here and remove these leaves again. I’ll save these leaves for Leaf propagation, Even though for me, Lolas don’t usually propagate by leaf. We can always try and then. I’m gonna just get as close to the bottom leaves as possible and just slowly cutting this away. Some of the leaves break off its. Okay there. We go all right so here. You can kind of see that you can see that. The outer layer has been just kind of ripped off those leaves on the top. But that’s fine, it will grow up back. Here is the cutting you can kind of see how that’s really wet now. In comparison to one of these, you can see how it’s kind of brown kind of dried up And that is called Calla Sing. And so you want to wait for this one to be calloused and with the top? Here you want to wait for the bottom piece right here to become calloused up, and you can kind of see how that’s a light green as well now for the roots for the roots. I’m going to just remove these bottom few leaves. Maybe this one too there. Because where the leaf meets, the plant is called a node and usually the note has the roots grow out of it. So you kind of want to leave a little bit of node for the new roots, but then you want to have at least enough for a little rosette and some leaves now for a lot of cuttings, you could just take from the bottom, and I’ll explain this a little bit in my cutting specific video, but instead of just cutting it down here underneath all the leaves and leaving just the bottom piece of this stem like that. You’re not, you could get new babies from this and a lot of times you do, but I have found that. When you leave a nutrient source like the leaves on the bottom part of this, then stem, too. You get much better results like these babies. Okay, so now. I’m just going to be leaving this in a indirect light spot for a few days until this callus is over. And then you can just plant it in dirt like you normally would all right so I am done cutting them up. I’m just going to be putting these guys back where they go on my grow shelf and this new cutting. I’m also going to be placing him here. I haven’t found that They need any different light requirements at they’ve been cut. Here is one of the other cuttings. One of them had a little mishap and I actually broke it off at the bottom. Just like I said, I don’t like to do, but I’m just gonna put him down here and see if he grows anything, but the top really shouldn’t be affected at all. So I have my three tops here. You can kind of see just how much I saved. It’s really not a whole lot now. This is underneath my grill light, but it’s all along the edge and so they don’t get much light. Here, usually my succulents. I have along these two bars stretch, and then this one is that middle piece where I have at the bottom and at the top without anything, I’m going to see and kind of just experiment with him and see if anything happens. Alright, so that’s kind of it with these cuttings right here. I’m just going to leave them here for about a week. Wait for them to callus over, and then I’ll put them in some dry soil and give them a water, just like I would any other regular, succulent. If you do have questions about watering succulents, though, I’ll include a link down below to one of my videos on it. If you have not already please subscribe to our channel, so you don’t miss anything and turn on the notification bell. I am going to be trying to push out as much content as possible, preferably once a week. So you definitely don’t want to miss that because there’s gonna be a lot of really good, succulent growing tips associated with that. If you guys found this video helpful, please give it a like. It really helps my channel and shows other people that it was helpful so they can watch it. Alright, thank you guys. So much for joining and. I’ll see you later, bye.
