If you want to expand your succulent collection and propagate Echeveria ‘Pulv-Oliver’, there are a few methods you can try:
- Leaf Cuttings: Most Echeveria species, including ‘Pulv-Oliver’, can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings. Simply take a healthy leaf from the plant and place it in well-draining potting soil for succulents. Keep the soil lightly moist and wait for a new plant to sprout from the leaf.
- Stem Cuttings: Another propagation method is to take stem cuttings from the plant. Cut a healthy stem and let it dry for a few days to form a callus. Then, plant the stem in well-draining soil and water sparingly until it develops roots.
- Seeds: While less common, you can also propagate Echeveria ‘Pulv-Oliver’ from seeds. Sow the seeds in well-draining soil and keep them lightly moist. It may take some time for the seeds to germinate and grow into mature plants.
