If you want to expand your collection of Echeveria Moranii or share it with others, there are a few propagation methods you can try:
- Offsets: Echeveria Moranii produces offsets, also known as “pups,” from its main stem. These offsets can be separated and propagated as individual plants. Wait until the offsets are at least two centimeters in diameter before separating them from the parent plant.
- Leaf Cuttings: Another way to propagate Echeveria Moranii is through leaf cuttings. Gently pluck a leaf from the stem, making sure not to damage it. Allow the leaf to callous over for a few days, then place it on top of a propagation medium with the u-shaped end facing downward. Keep the leaf in indirect light or use a grow light. Roots should sprout in two to four weeks, followed by new tiny leaves.
Remember to provide the right conditions and be patient for successful propagation. With these methods, you can expand your collection of Echeveria Moranii and share its beauty with others.
