So a couple years ago I ordered a bunch of mixed succulent cuttings. While they have all grown to be healthy, beautiful, and diverse succulents, it has provided tons of frustration as I do not know what variety many of these are. If you have ever tried to identify a succulent online you know my frustration. I have looked up plants that I have whose variety I know, and even then I question online resources as pictures are so misleading. Add in seasonal variation in colors and identifying unknown succulents can be like finding a needle in a haystack.
So, one of my favorite plants (the one in the back pictured above) in the greenhouse came from this collection of cuttings. I do not know what type of succulent it is, (let me know if you can identify it!) but it is gorgeous with such a unique shape. For the past few years the two cuttings I received have grown into healthy plants, but no “pups” came from them. I didn’t want to attempt leaf propagation because I didn’t want to damage the plant because I have so few of them. While watering in the greenhouse today, look what I discovered!
Years of persistence has paid off! Both plants actually have a baby pup and in a couple of weeks I will be nervous and excited to take the cutting and get it rooted! While I still don’t know exactly what type of plant this is, I am excited about propagating it and including them in future designs!
