I literally yelled hooray… After about seven to eight months my sansevieria cuttings finally are showing some new growth!
Since this is such a slow, slow process, it’s occasionally nice to look back through the blog at pictures of the plants to take a good perspective on their progress.
Right now I’m looking at the Black Prince propagations.
Just two months ago, I had posted a picture of them looking like this:
Now I currently only have two of the black prince leaves still going (of the three I started), and one of two nodulosa leaves. Looking back, I’m currently at three months progress on these propagations show at the top.
The lithops seeds that I started a few weeks ago are suffering a severe issue with algae/fungus on the top of the soil.
Someone shared with me the technique in this video, and as strange as it may seem – I’m going to give it a go! I sterilized some sand in the oven today, and I’m using a some cotton swaps in a take out container to start 10-15 in a second batch. I’m not sure how it will work out with the fact that the cotton is essentially planted along with the seedlings in the long run; but the adult lithops in the video seem to be doing okay. I figured it was worth 10-15 seeds to give it a try!
