How Do I Propagate Echeveria Pallida?

How Do I Propagate Echeveria Pallida?

Propagating Echeveria pallida is easy. You can propagate from leaf cutting, stem cutting, seeds and offsets. To start propagation for Echeveria pallida, you can take cuttings from the healthy, flowering plant and give them a rooting hormone prior to planting them in containers that have good drainage and air circulation.

You should provide the cuttings with bright light. Rooted cuttings should be placed under a bench lamp or in a very bright location to allow them to grow roots and leaf buds as if they were in their natural environment.

 Once the roots have formed, you can use them for potting or growing on and then transplanting into a new container.

It is best if you keep the temperature of the cutting between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit at all times so that it can properly root.

You should keep a warm room that is bright with plenty of indirect light but not direct sunlight. The following are the steps to follow when propagating Echeveria Pallida;

Propagation from leaf cutting;

  • Take a leaf and remove the peel back to the middle of the leaf.
  • With a sharp knife use the knife to cut off the strip of flesh from down to within 8 inches or so of the end.
  • Place in a pot that has good drainage and other nutrients required for growing plants.
  • Pour in water until it covers up to about 3-4 inches of soil surrounding it, making sure to keep air above and below it moist too. Apply rooting gel well
  • Cut a small shallow diagonal slice on the end of the leaf, located on the base after removing the peel.
  • 3. Cover with plastic wrap and place in bright light or place in a warm room with bright light but not direct light. The plant should be placed in a warm room that has good ventilation and air circulation.
  • 4. Make sure that you keep it watered often so that it does not dry out too much between soaking periods.
  • Make sure that the temperature is between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Make sure that you do not let it sit in water or completely dry out before removing the leaves. Once the leaf has started growing a new leaf you can remove it and add them to containers of your choice.
  • If you are using a clay pot to grow the plant, then be careful not to let too much water build up inside as they can crack and break which will kill any chances of growing the plants in them.
  • Do this every three to four weeks.

Propagation from seeds;

  • Start by soaking seeds in warm water for 24 hours, this will soften them up and help germination.
  • You can start them in a seed tray or flat in a container that has good drainage and air circulation.
  • Place half of the seeds at the bottom of the container, cover with half of the pods.
  • Next, add half of the potting mix and then cover with another layer of seeds.
  • Then cover this layer with the rest of the potting mix, finally cover with a thin layer of sand. You can also place a small paper towel at the bottom to ensure that it is moist all the time.
  • Place in light intermittent sun or room with bright light but not direct light The plant should be placed in a warm room that has good ventilation and air circulation.
  • Make sure that you keep it watered often so that it does not dry out too much between soaking periods.
  • Make sure that the temperature is between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Begin watering every day and wait until the seedlings have roots before you transplant them into their final home.

Propagation from Offsets;

  • Find a healthy, flowering plant that has offsets.
  • Take one of the offsets and carefully remove it from the mother plant.
  • You should target offsets that are about the same size as the original mother plant or of a slightly larger size depending on where you will be transplanting them into their final home.
  • Remove the offset from parent plant by gently gripping both ends and pull away from the main stem with moderate force until it is released then place in a pot that has good drainage and air circulation.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place in bright light or place in a warm room with bright light but not direct light the plant should be placed in a warm room that has good ventilation and air circulation.
  • Make sure that you keep it watered often so that it does not dry out too much between soaking periods.
  • Make sure that the temperature is between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Make sure that you do not let it sit in water or completely dry out before removing the leaf from the mother plant.

Does Echeveria Pallida Go Dormant?

Echeveria Pallida goes dormant in wintertime, but spring will bring back the leaves. You should keep the plant in a cool place for at least 2 months, and you should not water it during this time. Dormant plants usually go too far into dormancy when there is no sufficient light or humidity, so make sure your Echeveria receives enough light and air circulation during wintertime.

If the plant goes into dormancy, then it will not grow back until it receives new conditions. The best way to get your Echeveria back out of dormancy is to move it outside during springtime season in order to receive more light and sunlight.

If you keep your Echeveria indoors during wintertime and start seeing drooping leaves, then you should change its location.

You should put it somewhere where there is direct sunlight and high humidity. After it gets out of dormancy, you can start water your plant again if you still want to see new leaves sprout out of the plant. You will have to wait until springtime before the leaves start showing again.

You should not re-pot an Echeveria after it goes into dormancy because this may cause root damage or shock. The new potting media will not be ready until springtime since plants need time to dry up and new potting media to get ready first.

Do not try to over-water your Echeveria after it goes into dormancy, because it may bring root rot to the plant. You should also avoid feeding it for one month when it goes into dormancy because if the plant does not receive adequate amount of light, then this will cause over-watering and root rot.
