Succulents are hearty plants that will grow with little care and maintenance. Some plants will grow little “babies,” such as the echeveria pictured here.

You can leave them as is, or when the babies get about 2 inches in size, you can cut them from the stem and replant it into the existing pot, in a new pot, or give it to a friend.

Check out Due Manici below. After 3.5 months, the arrangement has grown and become more full. As you can see, little babies grew from the main plant in the bottom right side of the image. You can cut these and replant them, or leave them as is.

Aren’t succulents just wonderful?

Replanting & Grooming

You can maintain the beauty of a succulent arrangement by grooming it periodically. This means pulling off the dead/dried leaves from the plant and those that have fallen into the soil. Also, after sometime, the plants may have grown big and unwieldy. Check out this arrangement given to Tiffany & Adrian at their Housewarming Party over 2 years ago. Most of the plants have done well, grown. One didn’t do so well as you can see at the bottom of the picture. Replanting and grooming does it wonders – see the after!
