Dudleya 'White Sprite'

Dudleya gnoma ‘White Sprite' is a slow growing succulent with heavily pruinose leaves. Dudleya is a genus of succulent perennials which are widespread and typically found in rocky outcrops where their leaves help them store water in a setting too dry for most other plants to survive. Dudleya should be planted at an angle allowing water to drain away from the center of the plant, preventing microbial decay.

Dudleya is a genus of succulent perennials which are widespread and typically found in rocky outcrops where their leaves help them store water in a setting too dry for most other plants to survive. Dudleya should be planted at an angle allowing water to drain away from the center of the plant, preventing microbial decay.


Propagation

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Succulents can be propagated by different means. The most common one is the vegetative propagation. They include cuttings where several inches of stem with leaves are cut and after healing produce a callus. After a week or so, roots may grow. A second method is division consisting of uprooting an overgrown clump and pulling the stems and roots apart. The easiest one is allowing the formation of callus from a leaf. The vegetative propagation can be different according to the species.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Succulents need good draining soil. When planting in the garden, make sure the area drains well and is not in a low spot that would stay wet. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole or put crushed rock on the bottom before your planting medium. Dudleya should be planted at an angle. This allows accumulated water to drain from the nestlike center of the plant, thus preventing microbial decay.
