How to Propagate Crassula ovata ‘Gollum'
Crassula ovata ‘Gollum' is propagated by leaves or cuttings.
When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem. This will give you a better chance of a successful propagation.
Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.
It can be difficult to propagate Crassula ovata “Gollum” from leaves, but it is possible.
If you are taking a cutting of a ‘Gollum,' use a sterile knife or sharp scissors and cut a tube from the base of the plant. Allow the cutting to dry for several days before placing in well-draining soil. Wait to water an additional day or two, and then water using the “soak and dry” method.
