        Propagating - the Basics
  1. Methods
    Seeds, cuttings, leaf, division ~
    The best part of selling plants is growing and propogating.
  2. Aloe Brevifolia Pups ~
    From one small plant that grew up and matured, I have made at least 30 new plants
    In the "Visit My Garden" page, you will see the Blue Agave which sends out pups. I took the pups with roots and made new plants..
  3. Use Appropriate Plants:
    Make sure the plant you take cuttings from are strong and healthy without plant pests
  4. I use a lighter soil for Rooting cuttings:
    Put the plants into moist soil and wait a week before watering again. When the weather is warm my plants generally root within 2 weeks.
    There are products such as root tone you can use to help stimulate root growth.
  5. Use Clean Tools:
    Make sure the cutters or knifes you use are clean. If you cut a plant that has been diseased, make sure you clean the tools with alcohol or bleach..
  6. Irrigate Efficiently:
    Don't over-water. Use soaker hoses and drip irrigation to water deeply & encourage deep root growth.
  7. Capture Rain and Snow Run Off
    Use rain barrels and cisterns to capture water draining off roofs. Run-off from paved areas can be
    directed back onto the landscape to water trees, shrubs and flower beds.
  8. Maintain Your Landscape and Garden Properly:Keep irrigation systems running properly.
    Avoid the lush, thirsty plant growth that results.
