The method of sowing and reproducing cacti and succulents is widely used. This is when fragments of plants are used for reproductive purposes. For example, in the case of a succulent, you can just cut a leaf carefully and place it on a new substrate (the surface where the plant will grow). If what you are interested in is reproducing cacti, it is advisable to cut the cactus and leave the cutting to dry for about 15 days in a dark box. Doing this will close the stem and prevent it from rotting when planting it. If you want to reproduce cactus in large quantities, the easiest way to do this is to use the seed.
Cacti and succulents like fast draining succulent soil.
If using the cuttings propagation method, it is essential to help the cut plant recover. This is achieved by allowing the healing of the part where the cuttings were obtained. At first, this part may release liquid that was retained in its leaves, but it must be allowed to escape. In approximately 15 days the plant heals and creates a scar tissue around the cut part.
Fungi can attack these plants. To avoid that, spray the cutting with an organic, environmentally friendly fungicide.
Different Methods to Regrow Succulents
Sowing from Seeds
Succulents can be spread through their seeds, but it requires a lot of patience. Some species may even take months to germinate because they remain dormant until they find the optimal conditions to germinate and grow.
Another problem with seed sowing is that some varieties have tiny seeds and need great care to be able to handle them. Without a doubt, this type of propagation can be a gratifying challenge for anyone who wants to learn about how to plant succulents from their seeds.
To propagate this plant, you must place four seeds in a small pot with a mixture of square garden soil units and one perlite soil unit. The top of the container should be filled with well-granulated soil (use a sieve to obtain the rarest earth) to allow it to germinate and cover the seeds with a fragile layer of the substrate. During germination, watering should be constant but in small quantities with the help of a Spray. Once they grow a few inches, you must transplant them to their final place with the mixture of substrate
Spread by droppings
This is the easiest method of propagation when it comes to how to plant succulents, as you only need to remove the succulents from the established succulents and place them in a pot with the ideal substrate for these plants. The substrate must be pressed very well to remove air and encourage growth.
Pot changes or transplanting
One thing to keep in mind about how to plant succulents is that they can withstand changing pots only when transplanting is not done during flowering. This is a particularly mandatory process if your plants come from a nursery. This is a safety measure against the opposite substrate and excess moisture.
