Post by Muhammad Arif Khan » June 26th, 2012, 1:14 pm

I loved my Kalanchoe

Wanted more plants but could not find so I changed it to this.

18 leaf cuttings and 10 tip cuttings.
What will it be?

I lifted a leaf yesterday and found tiny roots at the base of petiol. Over watering could kill them.

70% Peat + 30% Perlite, watering from bottom, will start feeding with NPK 1-2-1 50 PPM Nitrogen after two weeks.
