Succulent & Houseplant Propagation

When I am not out in the garden or at the allotment I am usually in my studio attached to my shop. This is my safe space, my calm space where I can paint, sketch and study plants. It is also home to my propagation station for succulents and house plants.

As you can see in the top photo I start the leaves off in bottles of water. When the roots show I move them into little pots of compost. (Bottom left corner of the top photo)

This method has been working well for me and has provided me with lots of lovely plants to share.

I am going to test out other propagation methods this year so I will let you know how I get on.

A number of you have asked where I got the small bottles, unfortunately it was over a year ago that I got the exact ones in the photo but here are some very similar:

Pack of 24 small bottles

Pack of 12 small bottles
