I was given a leaf from an Echeveria plant in the summer by a friend. I was told to let the leaf form a callus where the leaf was taken from the parent plant. When that was done I laid the leaf just on the surface in a container of mostly sand. The leaf over time grew roots and three little plantlets began to grow. These are in a pot no bigger than three inches across. I have placed in the south facing window sill of my kitchen. I hope that they survive the winter there so that I can plant them in the garden next spring. Echeveria is a succulent come from Central and South Americca. The plant consists of fleshy leaves that form rosettes. It requires very little water and a winter temperature of 50 degrees.
I am joining Laura at BloggingfromBolivia for Macro Friday. Hope your week has been great and not too stressful getting ready for Christmas. I am going to haul the Christmas tree out this weekend from its storage place under the basement stairs. Valerie
