How Do I Prune For Aeonium Castello Paivae?

Pruning serves to keep the plant healthy and strong. When pruning your Aeonium Castello Paivae you should snip off any main stems that start to turn brown at their bottom node, up to about half of their height.

Aeonium Castello Paivae, like most succulents do not require pruning except to keep them healthy and to prevent them from growing into tall, leggy plants that are hard to take care of. Aeonium Castello Paivae can be tucked away in a corner of your garden if you have limited space, as they are a small plant. The following are the pruning processes;

Stem trimmings:

One of the most important things to remember when you are pruning your Aeonium Castello Paivae is to only cut back the stems that have flowers. If you cut off the stem with a flower it may affect the viability of that stem, and it will likely not flower again. Stems without flowers are still carrying out photosynthesis, so they are healthy and just need trimmed.

Flowering stems:

Only cut back flowering stems to about half of their original length. Flowering stems should not be cut back as you will disturb the flower buds and make it difficult for them to open. Once you have pruned the stems, take a look at the flowers themselves.

If they seem to be open, leave them alone. If they are fully opened and making seeds, clip them off with sharp pruning shears. You can also cut individual flowers off if they seem to be out of place or looking odd in terms of aesthetics.

Old or dead flowering stems:

Trim any branches that are too long to the same level as the rest of the plant. This will prevent the plant from getting top heavy and making itself unattractive to look at, or being damaged by winds. You will also want to remove any flower buds which are no longer open. If you cut off the flower at the bud, it will not open and will make the entire plant look less appealing.

Remove any leaves that are getting too large or damaged:

Every now and then check the bottom of your Aeonium Castello Paivae to see if there are any leaves that you can remove. You will want to take these off because they will only make the plant look unattractive.

You will want to maintain the top (or blooming) part of the Aeonium Castello Paivae so that it does not get damaged by frost or excessive rainfall. If you notice that too many leaves are covering the top part, trim a few off so that they are no longer covering the blooming stems.

Prune back to its own shape:

You will want to prune any excess branches that are growing in odd ways or towards other branches. This can make your plant look very unattractive, and may cause future damage to the plant. When you trim your Aeonium Castello Paivae, you will want to make sure that you have some pruning shears on hand. This makes it easier to remove the entire flower if you do not have a pair of pruning shears. You can also use sharp scissors, but they are not as effective as pruning shears.

How Do You Propagate Aeonium Castello Paivae?

Propagation of Aeonium Castello Paivae is relatively simple, but there are some factors to consider. First, you can propagate Aeonium Castello Paivae by stem or leaf cutting, seeds and offsets. Aeonium Castello Paivae thrives in full sun and partial shade.

It is a drought-resistant succulent that incorporates three different growth patterns: clumping, rosette and caudiciform. When you look at an adult Aeonium Castello Paivae, the main rosette part of the plant is pale green with pinkish-red fleshy leaves.

With time, it will grow offsets where their leaves are greener in color than that of the parent plant. The following are the steps to follow when propagating Aeonium Castello Paivae:

Propagation by stem or leaf cutting;

  • Decide what part of the plant you would like to propagate.
  • Cut the stem at the base of the plant, approximately 3 to 5 inches (7.6–12.7 cm) above where you would like to place it in your garden or potted plant.
  • Place the stem in a well-draining soil mixture and cover it with a plastic bag.
  • Place the stem in its container in full sun or partial shade.
  • Keep the soil mixture moist, but not wet, until new growth is seen.
  • When new growth is observed, remove the plastic bag and move your plant to a permanent location where it will get plenty of light and good drainage.

Propagation by seeds;

  • Clean and wash all parts of your seeds well with water before placing them in moist peat moss. It is recommended to soak them for an hour or so before planting them in case there are any leftover surface impurities, but this is not mandatory.
  • Place the seeds on a clean surface, creating an even layer of about 0.5 inches deep. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of peat moss.
  • Place a tray of water above the seeds to keep them moist until they germinate.
  • The seeds will only take about 14 days to germinate, so you need to be patient!
  • After they have germinated, remove the peat moss and place your seeds in their final container.

Propagation by offshoots;

  • Cut off the offsets from the mother plant using a clean, sharp knife.
  • Set them aside in a well-draining soil mixture until you are ready to transplant them into their permanent location in your garden or potted plant.
  • If you have just repotted your parent plant, then it is fine to leave the offsets on the same planter until they have grown large enough to be transplanted easily.
  • If you have just transplanted your parent plant, then place the offsets and mother plant in a well-drained pots or in their permanent location in your garden or potted plants.
  • The new plants will need to be kept in the shade until the offsets have grown enough to support their own weight.
