#indoorplant #indoorplants #houseplant #houseplants #succulentsunday 15/09/19 A good opportunity to update some of my plants. #rainbowbush #portulacaria-afra #succulent #portulacariaafravariegata. This seems to be happier on my kitchen windowsill with infrequent watering.
Decided I’m not going outside in this wind, don’t think there’s too much damage, so checking on my houseplants! My #rainbowbush #portulacaria-afra #succulent is growing new leaves and seems happier. Hoping it doesn’t drop them all again!! 10/08/19 #portulacariaafravariegata
Have taken cuttings of my #rainbowbush #portulacaria-afra #succulent 07/04/19 #succulentsunday Hoping I get some healthy plants from this. @gjones @kimmy01 @PunkyKy This is a photo of the roots. The soil was quite wet underneath the top layer which was dry. Do you think the main plant will survive?
#advice Not sure what to do with this. Thought I’d found its happy place last year but the past few months it’s been dropping leaves and not sure it’s growing new ones. Really can’t seem to find a position it’s happy in all year round. 😔 #rainbowbush #portulacaria-afra #succulent 01/04/19 #portulacariaafravariegata
The stem at the bottom looks like it's kinda "Woody" looking. Is it getting root rot? They like it pretty dry..... The soil looks a littleheavy and a slightly too damp.... Where is located and how much light does it get? Sorry for asking too many questions... Just trying to pinpoint the problem. ❤🌵🌱☺
Mine dropped all its leaves when I first brought it home so I repotted it. have mine in half succulent soil and half tropical plant soil. I find it likes a nice warm sunny location but I haven't put it in full sun. I do let mine dry out in between waterings. Have you tried cutting off a healthy branch and rooting it to start a new plant. I know me, when something isn't growing to my satisfaction, I take a cutting for rooting and prune the rest to see if it'll produce new healthy growth.
@PunkyKy thanks. It’s been by my patio door so gets sunlight from late afternoon. I’ve tried to only water it once every two weeks max. When. I repotted it last year, I did put some grit in the bottom and mixed it with the compost. When I get home from work I’ll take a look at the roots and see.
I would take a small cutting and that fallen leaf and try and grow a new one first then have a look in the pot you might have some vineweevils it might be worth re potting in new house plant compost with added sand if it's not that then maybe over watering it looks a bit dark and damp only water it tiny bits after you repot. Good luck they can be funny the rainbow ones mine lost a few leaves I will have to take a cutting as back up. 💚💚
I just got this from Google, To grow Portulacaria afra “Elephant Bush” from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely. Maybe take that small branch from the bottom 💚
02/06/18 very pleased to see how much #newgrowth this #succulent has put on since I repotted it and moved it. Top picture at repotting; bottoms picture taken today. It's obviously much happier where it is now. 😊 #rainbowbush #portulacaria-afra
12/05/18 taken this out of terrarium where it wasn't doing well. Planting it on its own and moving location to a less sunny spot in hope of it doing better. 🤞🏼 #rainbowbush #portulacaria-afra #succulent #portulacariaafravariegata
