  • Dorstenia gypsophila cutting technique

    #Dorstenia Propagating Dorstenia gypsophila with cutting technique works most effectively, because it is very easy. Plus, the offspring produces more flowers and seeds from its new root system, but will not have a caudex. Generally, Dorstenia gypsophila does not have a large caudex anyway. Dorstenia gypsophila from its natural habitat or an aged one is not very productive, possibly because nutrients cannot reach its top shoots. Dorstenia gypsophila Stem Cuttings: Ensure that the plant is not in bloom or its flowers have withered. If it received any rain prior, allow at least 5-7 days before cutting, or the stem will rapidly dry and cause problems. Choose a stiff stem with coarse barks. Its green color should not be too light nor too dark. Cut the stem of about 3 inches long. Be sure to use a clean and very sharp razor blade to make the cutting. Once cut, the resin oozing out of the plant can be left as is, for it will cover the opening naturally when it dries. Red lime can be used instead if needed. Prune the leaves off the cut stem, except for the fresh ones at the tip. Naturally, all leaves will fall once the stem goes into the pot. Leaving them on may even bring fungal disease later. Wipe the resin oozing out of the cut stem opening, and dip the opening into rooting hormone. Leave it to dry for about 1-2 days. Before potting, bring the stem opening to dip into rooting hormone once more. Prepare a pot of corresponding size with the stem. The growing media uses our peat formula #Mixtureforsucculents. It should be prepared a few days prior to potting. Make a hole into the media and push the stem in deep enough for it not to topple easily. Press the media around the stem to make it stand firmly. At this point, no need for water sprinkle. When the pot looks about 80% dry, use water sprinkler from above. This helps the media to be denser. Whether the plant came from natural habitat or not, the cut stems take 3-5 weeks to recover and grow. If the pot feels light or its surface looks dry, it is time to water it with the sprinkler. Watering also helps thickening the media and supporting the stem to stand. This is its most fragile time and time is all it takes. All leaves will fall off and new ones will shoot indicating that new roots have grown. For more details, Please watch this vdo Let's chat FB messenger This is the fastest way that we can communicate.

  • How to grow Dorstenia gypsophila seed

    #Dorstenia Here are some of the techniques to grow Dorstenia gypsophila seeds: Use small pots to distribute the seeds. Mr. Lek use 10 seeds per pot. This can both keep birds and nuisance away, and control damage in its own pot should one rot. Do not mix incompatible desert coconuts in the same pot in terms of germination rate, round leaf shape like Dorstenia foetida. Dorstenia lavrani and gypsophila can be on the same pot because the germination rates are close and they do not interfere with each other. Use coco-peat growing media formula found in #Mixtureforsucculents at Little One Plant Nursery. This formula can be used with all types of seeds. Prepare the media in the pot, water, and spray fungicide, such as Captan or Metalaxyl, on the surface. Strew the seeds, then a thin layer of pumice over the surface. But if using a large pot, the order of pumice and the seeds should reverse, because watering the surface will bring the seeds under the pumice eventually. Spray Captan or Metalaxyl again. The seeds should germinate within 5-7 days. Beyond that the chances of germination are very slim. During this 5-7 day waiting period, should the pot feel light or the moisture in the pot go lower than 20% or more than 80% look dry, then the pot should be watered. Set the pot on a water tray to allow it to absorb water. Do not sprinkle from above as it will cause the seeds to bounce off. Do not apply fertilizer or any antifungal spray when the seedlings are fragile because they will rot and die. When the seedling is about 1.5 inches tall, it can go into its own pot as the root system is still not very long, no need to clean, rendering the process of changing pot easy and safe. The seedling will recuperate quickly and the leaves will not fall off. For more details, Please watch this vdo Let's chat FB messenger This is the fastest way that we can communicate.

  • Breeding variegated Dorstenia from zero to hero

    Dorstenia prefers sunlight of at least 80%, so while it is not too hot for breeders to work with, they can grow quite large. Since 2011, Mr. Lek received a variegated Dorstenia Lavranos 23877 from Mr. Suthichai, and had begun crossbreeding into a career. At the time Dorstenia Horwoodii, despite its rarity and heavy price tag, did not have good wavy leaf blades, unlike those in the market today. Nonetheless, Mr. Lek worked with what he had, and through time and perseverance, he successfully bred a potently variegated Dorstenia that had bright white-green contrast and wavy leaf blade. As he began his career, his breeding practice was both of organic and human-intervention propagation. Dorstenia Lavrani was his most preferred species to breed with others, since its genetic superiority would make the offspring to have similar features to D.Lavrani, having good thicket form, and silverish leaf color, for instance. The offspring turned out mostly unisex, infertile and had variegation level not so much different from its parents. This posted real challenge in his development. With other species than D.lavrani, breeders can let natural pollination to occur because they are bisexual. However, selecting good offsprings to work on is very critical to the development. Crossbreeding with D.lavrani would produce offspring looking similar to it, only with more vivid color. Most of them are infertile, so every seed that they can bear is priceless. Expensive species like gypsophila or giga may not be suitable to develop into hybrids, because the offspring would not look good. Mr. Lek stresses the importance of crossbreeding and selecting process. In every rendition, select variegated offsprings that have bright, contrast color, and evenly distributed throughout all leaves from bottom to top. Lastly, experts always say that smart purchase of a good plant to start breeding your own can save years of development down the line.
