Today’s post is a collection of plants in the “nursery” – the oldest of my leaf propagations or attempts to start succulents from seed. Most of these were single leaves (unless noted as seedlings) when started, most of them started sometime around February (meaning they are at about six months). Some of them (like the Pachyveria Blue Jewel) didn’t start actively rooting or growing for the first 2+ months). Patience, as it turns out, is a virtue.
|Graptopetalum Paraguanese (“Ghost Plant”) – Various Propagations|
Ech. Seedling ‘1b’
(This plant had a bad run in with stem rot shortly after this picture was taken; I suspect it’s another Gigantea like the two above given the similar leaf shape and coloring. I was able to save a few leaves, so we’ll see if I salvage anything from this specific plant.)
|Ech. Seedling ‘2b’
(Recently sunburnt, but still showing new growth from the center. Blue leaves, slightly ruffled, angled shape with a dart at the end; might be Lolo or a ruffley variety of such.)
|Pachyveria ‘Blue Jewel’|
Crassula Perforata ‘String of Buttons’
