💖✨ Echeveria ‘Etna’ is RESTOCKED! ✨💖
Finally, right?! 😂
I was so surprised when I dropped by my nursery and the staff came up to me to let me know they had ‘Etnas’ back again!
OF COURSE, I HAD TO GRAB AS MANY AS I COULD! 🙈

Did you know you can propagate succulent leaves in pure pumice? 🤔 This is actually one of my favorite ways to propagate! Steps ⬇️ below!
1. Fill container with pumice
2. 🍃Put succulent leaves on pumice 🍃
3. Ignore while they do their thing in a place with 🌞bright indirect light (aka good selfie light!)🌞
4. Once baby planties form on the ends of the leaves you can 💧water like adult plants if you wish 💦 (water til it comes out drainage holes then do not water again until pot is light and pumice dries completely) or ignore until the parent leaf is used up and shrivels. This can take months so be patient! Desert plants grow slowly. 🌵
5. Do it again while you are waiting for your other propagations to show progress 😂
More about pumice. What is it? Crushed volcanic 🌋 rock. It is great because it absorbs and holds water, and protects roots from rotting because bacteria 🦠 and fungus 🍄 can thrive in wet soil next to roots then go eat your roots but can’t compete as well in pumice. You can buy online like from @sexysucculents_ or amazon (quality gonna be better from the former) and some garden stores sell huge bags for cheap (like @sloatgardens in SF but ask at the checkout stand cause some locations have the big bags out of sight). 😉 good luck!! And let me know questions below 💕
Have I introduced you to the rest of the family??? My little blooming buddies on Christmas time. To be honest, the pink one started to bloom right after I've propagated him....🤞🤞this year I'll have additional blooms.
I thought I had lost my two variegated blue herons to frost, but I didn’t touch the pots for a few months (even left the dead leaves) and they both made full recoveries! 🥰 once the rosettes bounced back to a good size, I was able to pull the dead leaves off and repot. I’ve learned that sometimes picking at and repotting suffering plants can actually increase the likelihood of their demise, where as ignoring them all together allows them to stop trying to adjust to new conditions and just grow! 💕
