Succulent Plants: Answer: Succulent Plants


Dear Manuela,
We thank you for contacting us for information on your succulent plants through.
The term succulent or succulent plants refers to a vast series of plants that also belong to botanical families such as Cactaceae, Euphorbiacee, Liliaceae, Crassulacee, Apocinacee, Agavacee. These plants have in common the ability to have adapted to survive in arid climatic environments by minimizing respiratory and transpiration processes, while in particularly rainy periods, they are able to accumulate considerable amounts of water in their tissues, which serves as a reserve during long periods of drought.
In general, succulent plants have specific needs for lighting, watering and fertilizing so as not to create rottenness that affects their vitality. They are plants that do not need frequent repotting due to their slow growth; however the operation can be carried out every 2 years with certain well-being for the plant due to the elimination of any parasites and the restoration of optimal soil conditions.
The size of the vessels unlike leafy plants can be greatly reduced. The best season for the repotting of succulents goes from late winter to early spring before they have developed new roots.
In the repotting operation, care must be taken not to excessively compress the soil since they have very delicate roots. Regarding his question on the reproduction of his seedlings, this can be done by cutting.
The cuttings should be taken during the vegetative development period (spring) using parts of plants not damaged by diseases and which do not present flower buds.
Unlike other plants, Cactaceae cuttings must never be placed directly in the soil, but must be placed to dry in a dry and shaded place for several days (depending on the section of the cut) until complete cutting healing. Later the cuttings will be placed to root in a substratum of peat and sand keeping the soil slightly moist with fertigation (water and
fertilizer) at low concentrations. The optimum temperature for rooting is around 20 ° C and to encourage rooting it is recommended to use hormonal stimulators.
Sincerely.
