What is Gollum Jade?
Gollum Jade, or Crassula ovata, is a succulent plant native to South Africa. It’s leaves are round and fleshy, giving it a unique look that makes it stand out from other plants in its family. In addition to its attractive appearance, Gollum Jade also offers many benefits for people who choose to keep it as an indoor plant. Its tolerance of low light levels and ease of care make it a great choice for those with busy lifestyles or limited gardening space.
Propagating Gollum Jade
Propagating Gollum Jade is relatively simple when compared to other species of succulents. The easiest method involves taking stem cuttings from the parent plant and allowing them to root in soil or water before planting them in pots or gardens. Here’s how you can propagate your own Gollum Jade:
Step 1: Retrieve Cuttings From Parent Plant
Start by finding healthy stems on the parent plant that have at least one full set of leaves. Use scissors or pruning shears to snip off the stems just below their nodes (the point where they attach themselves onto the main stem). Each cutting should be at least 3-4 inches long so that they have enough foliage for photosynthesis after being planted separately. Make sure all tools used during this process are clean and sterilized beforehand, as introducing any diseases could seriously harm your new plants!
Step 2: Preparing Cuttings For Rooting
After you’ve harvested your cuttings from the mother plant, remove any excess leaves near their base (about half). This will help reduce moisture loss during rooting which can ultimately lead to rot if left unchecked. Additionally, consider dipping each end into some rooting hormone powder – this will aid in root development but isn’t necessary if you don’t have access to one!
