How To Propagate Sedum 'stonecrop' Succulent Plants


Hi, guys, it’s. Lynn, hey, I hope you’re having an incredible day now this video. I’m going to show you how you can propagate sedum, and I’m going to be this is. This is the sedum awesome joy plan. I’m going to be showing you how to take cuttings from here now. This plant is is a perennial which means it dies back. In the winter, it grows during the spring has beautiful flowers as here during the summer, and then it dies back right down to the ground, actually goes back right down to the roots, and this protects it off more the frost that I think they needed to put the spring. It grows back again. Now what I’m gonna be doing to propagate this. You kind of propagate the individually from leaves. Just pull a leaf off and pot it into some sandy soil, and it will root for you in a few weeks or you can as in this case. I’m actually going to take a cut in right down the bottom to get the stem now. What I’d recommend is always to take at least least six inches of the actual plant when it comes to taking a cutting of this and I’m going to be then rooting it in rain water. We’re going to be showing you, but you can also take a cutting and also put it straight into a sandy soil. Mix if you want in this case. I’d probably use perlite with a bit of joining’s number. Two and all you have to do is just cut back, obviously use a clean pair of shears, gardening shears or big, sharp scissors here. I just try to get to focus on this right down right down to the base there and then give it her sniffle like so, and then pull it away now when it comes to taking cuttings as with all plants. I’d always recommend doing this during the spring and summer as it’s late summer here, it will give it a chance to form its roots. If you do it too late in the season, then the plant will probably die back and give it good chance to form a good root system. There you go now what? I’d recommend also is when it comes to the bottom leaves is pulling off the bottom leaves, which I’m going to be doing now. Now pull off the bottom leaves like so, my weight can do is keep that leaf. I’m going to keep that, and you can pop that up with some sandy soil and it should form little roots and a new little plant should grow from it. And then this one here now what? I’d normally always do with succulents. Is I always recommend leaving them for a good, usually at least ten days to a couple of weeks to let them former palace before parting them up. But with this one you don’t have to, you can leave that. I wouldn’t recommend letting it color so beets and like a normal, succulent. All you need to do is just put it straight into water or straight into your soil. Mix, it’s really up to you. What you want to do here? I prefer to use water only because I like to see the roots actually forming while it’s in the jar. Probably not so you can use tap water. I prefer to use rain water. Our water here in Highland is really really hard and I find personally myself that since I’ve been using rain was all of my plans have been benefiting, so I’d recommend reading it in rain water like that, and he should form up in roots, usually for in a few week’s time, and as soon as he form roots, I’m going to party up into a pot and I would use a soil mixer. John Innes number two. Probably about sixty to seventy percent, and then I’d use about thirty to forty percent perlite, so it’s well drained and you can either. Then usually I’d recommend once its form the roots and your potted it up, and it’s got a good, you know, lots of fresh new growth. I’d then recommend you can put it back into the garden again in a well-drained spot, but I’d probably make one for the first the first year to overwinter it indoors when it is rooted. I’m going to be keeping it in my conservatory in a pot and it’s going to get plenty of light and sunshine there, and then I go to potty out in the spring now. The top of the plant dies back in the winter. Now it might not necessarily be the case because usually its first winter and overwintering doors that don’t always die back because the energy is going to form in the root system, but if it does die back whether you’ve got it potted up and it dies back, don’t panic. It’s unlikely the plant is actually done. He’s doing what it normally does, and it will grow back from the root ball in the spring. So don’t throw your plant out. It’s the biggest mistake that a lot of people do when they’re the first wintering they’re propagating. They just think the plant’s going to carry on so there. You go, guys! Oh yes. I just said to let you know I’m going to putting this here. Keeping this in my kitchen window. Now this gets plenty of light as you can see, and it gets a tiny bit of sunlight during the morning, but it’s not really really strong, sunshine, so when it comes to it to rooting cuttings, don’t put them in bright sunshine. I’d recommend using a very bright light, but not intense. Sunshine, there you go, guys! I think that’s everything and I want to send you loads of herbs and loads of happiness as always from Island until the next video. Happy growing guys you.
