Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We took a break from NGS openings in 2021/22 but we’ll be back in 2023!

Oooh, I’ve never grown these before so it’s going to be an exciting challenge! I hope I succeed @richard.spicer.7906 🤞😘💚

I found these difficult to grow as all the little leaves kept falling off. Good luck🤞🏻

I find that if you pull off the little leaves at the bottom of the cutting and drop those on top of the soil, then poke the stems into the soil, not much touching is then necessary. 🤣 Mine like more shade time than full sun and do not mind a more frequent watering. Enjoy.

I also grow from the leaves.. I will have to take my baskets hanging in direct sun on outer beam of the airport.. as the sun and wind ha damaged them.

@lovestogarden Thanks for the advice. I was going to pull some of the bottom leaves off but I probably would’ve discarded them. Now I’ll drop them on top of the soil as you suggest. 👍 @gjones Maybe you could do the same with your little leaves. 🤔

@jacaranda Too late for me as I gifted it to one of my daughters😁

Remember Barbara, almost all ucculent leaves will start a new plant. Their propagation is usually very easy (some plants are not easy though).

You’ll have to ask her to pull a few little leaves off and try to propagate them, Katy! 😂👍 @gjones

@lovestogarden How easy are these to propagate, Janice? 🤔

I started off with a couple of small stem cuttings, which unfortunately broke early on and all the leaves got knocked off. But I left them and they all grew into new plants. I’ve since planted them all into one pot and it looks fab. I would do as @lovestogarden Janice has suggested, strip off the bottom third of each stem, use those for new props and then stick the remaining cuttings in some soil to root themselves 👍🏼
