Potting Succulents

The No Cost Way

021909plant-01.jpgSitting on our front stoop today, we noticed how big our money tree (aka jade plant) has grown. When we moved into our apartment in Echo Park three years ago, we scoured the area for lovely succulents, finding most types growing along the roadside (and even our own backyard). All we needed was a small cutting and eventually we'd have our own mature plant to call our own. Our money tree all grown up plus after the jump.

We're currently drying out another jade plant to add to our collection. We like to use our plant clippings indoors as decoration while they're drying out.

We potted the succulent grouping on the right just a year ago. We collected both plant clippings from a friend's mature succulent.

Once you clip your succulent, the clipping only takes a few days to a week to dry out. After that, it's ready to plop down in some soil and grow.

We found a great video resource for propagating your own succulents called Expert Village: How To Grow Cactus and Succulent Plants.
