Hello, everyone! Welcome to desert succulent. And today we will be featuring Reptibaria thread eyes. It’s such as a mama. Succulent that can grow up to 48 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter or even bigger than that young lives, Nya can change its color, depending amount of water and sunlight as you can see right now. It started to get stressed. It is having the spartan pinkish to purple and light brown. The color. This kind of succulent is ideal for adding color accents at the bangarak gardens or plant containers mixed with other plants. Like what we did. Before with our arrangement. It was amazing now, very durable and very resilient among other succulents. So if you are someone, that is very busy, so work or even at home, and you don’t have time to take good care of your succulents. Then this one is a perfect plant for you, especially for beginners. This one is the typical stem of our Fred Ives, and I also have here you. I think not crested. Nah, Fred Ives. Interesting cassette. It is a mutation instead of producing branches or stems like young plant flattens out and creates a wide flat surface from this angle. You would really see that its flat and Yunkanyama leaves usually to Moto Busilla along the top of ridge. No thing apart and it would look like this, and so this is how it looks like. It’s very compact as compared to satin typical enough. Red Ives yuma crusted succulents specifically encrusted the thread eyes. They happen naturally, and we cannot force them to be crested. That’s the reason why if you have a crested succulent, it can be considered as a rare type because it doesn’t happen often, and even though we will propagating leaf nito adding crested thread Ives, It won’t necessarily turn into a crested one ati manga crested. Enough red eyes are actually very nice to look at Gangnam Style Tignan. They can be an instant NA arrangement on their own. So right back Isa, It can really stand out because of its flat nastin from the front. It would look like this. This type of cyclone is drought tolerant, but they actually have special needs when it comes to watering and as a matter of fact, it is one of the factors to be considered to keep them healthy. We can easily determine if readiness Fred Ives through their soil, so it’s very simple as checking or simply sticking you adding fingers, Akhanya Pinaka soil. And if you feel that the top layer is completely dry, then it is time for us to give it a good soak of water this one, and that one, they are our rain or shine succulent. They are receiving rain water, sigouro weekly for this one. I do water them every two to three weeks. Depending on my bilismag dry yunkanilang soil important, you need to water your Fred Hives less than normal every time. Nah, summer season. That is their dormant stage. We will be watering them. Just enough! Dehydrate or Mangolo leaves like any other succulents on wetness oil for a long period of time as it makes jungkook roots absorb a lot of water kung sao, and it can cause an ion adding rot or you’re adding pest infestation. You have to make sure that you are using a well draining soil for the succulent our thread eyes, love jung, full sun exposure. And if you’re going to give them enough sunlight, they can really turn into this vivid color, so they can also tolerate you adding partial sun, and it’s very ideal for us to grow you adding thread Ives some container outdoors. So if you are planning to put them indoors, you’re not going to be expecting. They will be this colorful because the main factor for them to be this vivid is because of the prolonged sun exposure. Another interesting fact about our drop to various red eyes is that they are aggressive and fast growers mabeli’s, but they also have young dormancy period, which is every summer, So let’s say that’s around March until May because during those times, Nama in it. This plant is actually focusing, not it developed young kanyang pinahar rather than growing so ginago any long mechanism during summer and this is their way to be able to tolerate nayon heat and drought better. They don’t need much water as compared when they are actively growing, so we really need to limit the amount of water that we are giving them. During summer, we have three ways of propagation first is leaves second. Is we have young candy? Lung stem cuttings and the third one is through their offsets and the easiest way is you’re adding leaf propagation, and since leaves you can easily separate them from the stem like, for example, What we did here, Tanina make sure that you’re gonna choose a healthy leaf to be successful, and you just have to gently twist it off from the stem, and it would look like this again. After removing, you can just lay it down. Cyanum soils a dry soil or any container that you want and I will be showing to you. So what you’re seeing right now is an example of a leaf propagated Fred Eyes. I use them arrangements. I also have this one young And technically speaking, we already have two new thread Ives out of one single leaf and some and this one is also coated with a very thin layer of farina. So you can see your acting fingerprint. So if you will try to do this, so you will see the difference. No, my farina. Versus jungle on farina leaf. Both of them are already stable and the second way of propagation is through our stem cuttings. So this is a mother plant and we beheaded it before so up close, literally after cutting the car on one two three and four new stems right now that’s a new growth. Even here’s aside NATO, there’s a new growth and another so leaves and I tried to brush it off. That’s why you would see some brush Canyon, Farina, but that’s okay, So this one now is our stem cutting Nang. I think red abs before, and it is continuously growing. If you wish your succulents to grow slower, then you have to put them in a succulent arrangement. That’s all the information. You need to properly care for your friend Ives.
