Propagation Station

These are Sedum rubrotinctum “Aurora” commonly referred to as “Pink Jelly Bean” succulents. These plants grow in large, thick leaves that are typical among most sedum plants. They are highly drought resistant and are known for propagating easily and quickly. Pictured below are some succulents that I’ve had propagating for barely two months. It is only a matter of time before stems start to grow from the base of these “mother leaves” and I can re-pot my propagations into individual planters. By September, I should have a miniature version of the plant these leaves originated from. If you scroll through these photos you can watch as the leaves of the new plant grow in size and number!
