I have I believe a Peperomia ferreyrae
Can I take cuttings and root them? I've had this for about a year and it needs a trim back but I'd like to root the cuttings for more plants.
Thank for any info!
Maybe not so commonly grown by succulent specialists, you might get more responses in Houseplants and Tropicals. This can supposedly be rooted from tip cuttings but I haven't tried it.
That's probably true, Shrubs makes a good point.
Pls. try a search for Peps. over at Houseplants, a grower named Karen715 is particularly good w/ Peps, you can either search the posts, or post this pic directly at HP (Pic) Gallery, where she's likely to see it.
I think in the past I did try tip cuttings of this & they failed, but perhaps I did something wrong w/ it.
Also, it MAY be best for you to wait 'til Spring to try, not sure.
Sorry, I thought this was the right forum.
This plant is very easy to root in water. Just pinch off a section, making sure the stem is green, not woody. Put it in a glass of water in a sunny window. Before you know it, you'll have new plants.
I root them all the time, in any season. My original plant grows like crazy and pinching off sections helps to keep it under control.
Could not see your photo, but I second magazinewriter's comment. P. ferreyrae is very easy to root. I root them in well draining soil mix as well as water.
And I do consider it very much a plant that belongs in the cactus and succulent group.
I couldn't see the photo either, just the opening page at Photobucket.
No Tom, sorry, I didn't mean to imply you were at the wrong forum. It's just that from what I know of Peps. they're mostly (the common ones) not succulents, so usually Peps show up at Houseplants. But you could search at either forum.
I think there's also another succulent type form which I've see discussed in one of the two places (P. dolabriformis?). Trying both places would find you something, I'm sure.
Thanks all. Some of my photobucket shots change every blue moon. Thanks for the replies and happy holidays to all!
