How To Prune Your Succulents!


Hi, it’s! Lori Eubanks have designed for serenity with your succulent tip of the day and we’re back in La Jolla Looking over one of my favorite all-time installations. This is about three years old, and I noticed today. I haven’t been here in about a month. That we’ve got some some plants that are kind of running amok. That are a little overgrown that needs some work and. I thought it might be really helpful to show you how to handle you like this. This stacking crassula. You see all of the decision here? I can hear you now, what do I do? Where do I cut? How do I handle it well? The way to deal with your little, your little crafts was is to pull the whole plant out of the ground and then we’re gonna cut off all of the pretty parts. Were gonna remove them from this old dead stem. Throw that away, see here. We have a couple more cute little pieces that will cut off. Throw away the stem now. You can also see that this beautiful. I don’t know what is that. Orange pink graph to see them is also showing a lot of trunk. I’m not gonna pull out the whole plant, though, because these two pieces still look fairly compact, So I’m just gonna cut real low to the ground and what that means is at the base of the cut. We may get tiny little plantlets, but this stem is history. The stem is toast. It’s gonna go and see this little bloom. Spike, that’s finished. Just pull that right off and throw it away. I’m gonna pull this plant out of the ground, too, because it’s getting awfully trunky and we’ll cut that off, dispose of the roots and stem this blooming part. This is a good idea. If you’re interested in propagation, you can remove the leaves off of the blooming part and set those in a tray of soil. And you will get little plantlets right at the base of the leaf. If you’re patient, so this can be restored, new little plants can be grown off of all of these little leaves, But this little florette here we want to remove it. And now we have a new tight, clean compact plant to reset into the ground. Now this little grab doh sedum here. Look, it’s just a single plant. There’s no babies, no pups forming and it has bloomed. So if you cut off the bloom spike, you’re left with a really unattractive plant. There’s no rosette. So this is also finished. It needs to come all the way out of the ground. Oh, my goodness, look at this well. I was mistaken. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Look here, we’ve got a couple of babies. We’ve got one here and we’ve got one right here, so we can pop these little guys right back into the ground, and all of these leaves can be harvested for propagation. And that’s how you handle a very, very leggy and misbehaved grabbed. Oh, seed him. And now we have the craft slit. Obata see how leggy this is in here. I had actually planted this as cuttings the three years ago, so it’s time it’s time to pull it out. Cut off the tops, reset them back in the ground. You all of these little baby plants that we have just popped back into the garden is cuttings will reroute and start growing again and in three years. We’ll probably have to come back and do what we did today. In the meantime, just continue watering as normal. This has been.
