I just saw them, they're doing great 😊 Can I ask you how often do you water them when you propagate them? Keep it rather moist at the beginning and then less as they are growing?

@natii Yep! At this point I water about once a week or longer. They really responded the last time I watered them and grew a lot a few days after. Makes me want to water them more often but I know better than that!

I plucked most the leaves of the #terminalflower. Does this look good to you? I unwrapped the root ball and put it back in the soil. @Yollymac

I would cut the stem and plant it with rooting hormone and get rid of the rootball. Cut it just about 1cm under the remaining leaves and stick it in the soil. You have pest Moss there so it should root very fast. Mine usually does in under a week.

I’m taking care of my friend’s Perle. It’s recovering from a mealybug infestation. After 5 days of constant inspection and rubbing alcohol I believe it is mealy bug free. But I’m keeping it for a few weeks just to make sure and to let it thrive in a grow light before returning it to its windowsill. The black marks are burns from where the bites were and where the alcohol met them.

I repotted my Perle today because I noticed it had hardly grown in a while but had been under lights. When I took it out of its pot it was mostly a root ball! I repotted it in this cute pot I got for Christmas with my new soil. We’ll see how she grows!

Question, are you sure this isn’t a purple pearl?

comment

@Yollymac there’s no encyclopedia for a purple Perle and I wasn’t totally believing it was a separate species! But it definitely is way more purple than the babies I have growing from a regular Perle.

I bought one doing not its best, what is the best soil and light for this

comment
ecoami

@greenwitch26 I️ use half perlite half cactus soil and they need full sun. I’ve moved mine to under a grow light.

@Yollymac look at how it looked when I bought it though! So interesting that it looks like a regular Perle without sun stress. I’d love to learn how the species was bred.

That IS interesting, for info my pp’s that I tagged you in are in all day shade with no change to colour. ☺️
