Succulents - an update

In previous blogs (24/3, 9/4) we covered propagating various succulents and promised to come back to doing the same to the Easter Cactus. Well, it is still spectacularly in flower so we will be deferring propagation for a while but here is an update on the other varieties.
The crassula have rooted well and are growing strongly; next stage will be to pot them up individually. We handed over a similar batch to Serpentine to be given away. The Zebra Haworthia have also taken well and one has even started to produce “offspring”. We will leave them to grow, with minimal watering.
The kalanchoe have also established themselves well and are ready to be given away. The stapelia cuttings are a bit feeble and we have edited out a couple. We will see how the others get on and propagate more if necessary; the seedlings however are still growing, albeit very slowly. We will see how they do before potting them on. And finally, the bromeliads seem quite happy. We have just uncovered them and given them a water. Once the outside temperatures become more reliably warm most of the succulents will be given some fresh air (something we all need!)
