Clever Gardening Technique

Succulent Secrets
When propagating succulents such as rosary vine, jade plant, or orchid cactus, don't water right away. Succulent plants need to form a callus over the cut surface or they will rot in the ground. Wait about 10 days before watering new cuttings, then saturate the soil and allow it to dry thoroughly before watering again.
