How to use the glass method
The glass technique is a method used specifically for growing succulents. It is so easy that you can even use it as a fun activity to do with your children. Also, it may be useful for those who are just particularly fond this type of plant.
First, grab a glass from your kitchen and fill it with water. Next, cut off a leaf from your existing succulent, making sure you cut close to the stem.
Now, take your glass and immerse the succulent leaf in the water, making sure the leaf lays flat. If you want to improve the chance of roots forming, you can also add some root hormones that can be found at a local nursery. If you have access to cinnamon powder, you can use this as well to help your plant grow.
Be sure to change the water every two to three days. Once you notice the appearance of roots, you will want to finally transfer the seedling to a pot. Remember to use a soil that consists of peat and sand.
And there you have it! Just a few simple steps to producing your own succulents at home. Now that you know how it’s done, why not give it a try?
