Wanted to share my new babies

plantomaniac08(8)October 4, 2012

I made some cuttings from a Sansevieria trifasciata 'Hahnii Jade' about two or three months ago and they are beginning to emerge. I wanted to share a photo of their progress (I think I might have one or two more under the soil line). Enjoy!

Hi Planto,

Nice work, looks like summer was the optimal time to do this.

In future, it wouldn't hurt to start 'em in smaller pots, in more shallow mix (may root & start up faster, at least indoors, I don't have the advantage of outdoors to grow in. Tips from Norma which I've found helpful).

Stush,
Thanks, I'll post more photos as they get bigger.

PG,
No worries, they all started in 2.25'' pots. I just repotted them today (I'd like them to grow together) and that's the smallest pot I could find that they'd all squeeze in (with the Mother leaves still attached. Once the Mother leaves die, I plan to stick them in a smaller pot again (Still together).

If those are yellow/white margins on your leaves, the mother plant is actually a 'Jade Dwarf Marginated'. The pups should lose the colored margins and become, S.t.Hahnii 'Jade Dwarf". Congratulations on having the patience to grow from leaf cuttings.

michaela,
Nope, no yellow margins, but thank you for your input!

Is it true that Sans lose the variegation when propagated vegetatively?

Larry,
Sans do indeed lose their variegation when propagated from leaf cuttings. If you want to keep the variegation, dividing the rhizomes is the only way to do it that I know of.

I kind of prefer plants without that kind of variegation anyway. I just need to find someone that has one...;)

Greenlarry,
Should be no problem. just ask some one who has a sans you want to give you a stem cutting. It could be a small one. Read down the post and find Pirate_Girl. She has the trick to rooting them as well as the post above.

Being from the UK I can see some problems. Keep searching the internet and some one in UK must have collections they are willing to share.
Check out Michael Phillips photos of Sansevierias;

See if you can email him. Maybe?

I believe Alan Butler sells to England. He's got nearly everything under the Sansevieria sun.

I know it hasn't quite been a month but they're exploding and I just wanted to share a new photo. I had to take one leaf out (had four originally) and I made a makeshift pot with a clear tray used to catch water (the large clay pot was making me nervous after all... Thanks for the concern PG, you were right).
