How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Perle von Nurnberg’
Echeveria ‘Perle von Nurnberg’ is very easily propagated, making it a favorite of succulent collectors. It be propagated from leaves, cuttings, or beheading.
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.
To grow PVN from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a leaf from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
Start by cutting off the top of the succulent using sharp scissors. Leave at least an inch or two on the base with 2-3 leaves. Be sure to leave enough stem on the cutting to plant in soil later.
Let both the cutting and the base dry out for a few days. Once the end of the cutting has calloused over, you can plant it.
