I love to share my favorite plants.
Today is the day I pot up the Schlumbergera pieces.
I have taken color requests. I have twisted off pieces with three or more links.
I have let these pieces callus off for several days. Notice the plates are labeled.
Now, I dust some rooting hormone on the lower nodes.
I use craft mesh over the drainage hole for any pots going outside and then inside. It keeps the critters out.
I use cacti/citrus mix potting soil, but any type will do. I prefer 3 inch pots, but could not find many.
Notice the labels for the pots with color and year. All these babies look the same.
I let these stand around in their pots for a day and then give them a watering.
I like to use a weakened mix of Planting/Transplanting solution.
They will be fully rooted and growing nicely when their new parents come in the spring.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
