Flowering

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Although this plant can flower within it's natural habitat - it's rare to see flowers bloom indoors, so it's grown for primarily it's foliage within homes. If your lucky enough to get it to flower, then you will see lovely small tubular shaped flowers bloom at the tips of the branches.

 

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Use a cacti and succulent potting mix, or your own mix which drains easily (part sand). The panda plant is a slow grower which will only need re-potting once every 2 years and then less once it matures.

 

Propogation by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Leaf cuttings can be taken and planted in new soil during spring. Give the leaf cutting a week of drying out before re-potting, then you can expect them to begin rooting within 4 weeks.
