HOW TO GROW DINNER PLATE AEONIUM | VLOG #97 Succulents & Coffee w/ Liz

i was gonna report it so i put it here,and it's been raining so much last night,we had 34 millimeter apparently and it's,still drizzling outside there i'm,supposed to sit down here and enjoy,cleaning this up plucking it with my,little tweezer here because i can't find,my,forceps inside i misplaced it it's,always i'll find it and i was gonna,repot this,my sansevieria twister look at it it's,like so many babies at the back there so,this is like one year's growth i think i,got this last christmas,if i can remember correctly last,christmas i got a twister but then now i,need to repot it,and,also clean up this,ionian here that's sort of,my variegated it looks like it's,variegating really so i really have to,look after this and this one i got look,ionian grenovia victoria 2019 in winter,when i bought this one along with,oh my goodness my champagne is only two,years old because that's the same time i,bought this as well,this is becoming a very bad habit now,this is my usual habit it's just that,yesterday i was,having some crumpets and today,for my afternoon snack this is my,merienda that's snack in filipino or in,spanish as well okay this is vanilla,slice,ah,this is one of my favorite,cake,um cup of coffee,to go with it oh,oh nice,that's my second cup of coffee by the,way,so good okay i'm going to finish up,later on i just found this ionian tabula,for me on my way out to my,50 zone area and look what happened to,it it got burned a little bit i bought,this a couple of weeks ago and i thought,i'll bring it out there to get rain on,and the sun must have gotten to it,when we have those days that we have the,sun coming out i reckon they're much,fiercer when they do come out so this is,the dinner plate aeonium so this is my,third,dinner plate ionian because i swear,i swear it's not swearing cursing swear,i seen promise i will never ever buy one,again because the two of them died on me,but then again,i have to really give this a chance,because when i bought it before i didn't,know anything about how to look after,ionium so we went away for our trip,and it's been left outside in winter,in the frost so the frosts have gotten,to it and if it had survived the frost,it would have died from no watering,because they love water,so twice i did that and twice i went,away for three months so of course,naturally the poor thing died so this,can only survive i think minus two,according to my research so we've had,even snow at one time i've got a hemi,mickey which is a smaller form so this,is my tabula for me mikio what's left of,it it's actually beautiful this is the,one that got attacked by the caterpillar,worm,i have to keep an eye because because,there's some,dark,spots there again so this is the same,one that kept getting attacked by,them little green worms caterpillars,as i just found out and anyway i call,them jumping worms now saturn they're,actually a larvae of a caterpillar so,this one is what's left of it i'm,growing a couple from leaves,and they're very hairy the tip and day,so this one now look at that oh it's,gorgeous so now in here there's so many,babies now if i harvest,this leaves here,if i can pull it out then that should,actually,grow,but it's summer here in australia and,they're asleep during summer so i'm not,gonna touch it i nearly forgot,i'm not gonna touch it until autumn so,even the bottom here so i wonder if,they're all grown from a leaf or they,just shoot off from the stem,so here there's a leaf that's fallen off,are you going to grow i'm going to leave,it because it looks like it's going to,have roots look at that okay maybe do an,experiment inside but inside it's still,warm as well plant in a dry shaded to,part shade position in pots for the fair,remove any offsets growing from the stem,to ensure the large head holds its flat,appearance so there you go,so if you want it to go big and ward and,dinner plate like then you have to,remove those offsets but not in summer i,would wait until the weather cools down,so once it gets to say 20 degrees,to,15 degrees then i will start removing,them and put it somewhere if you're in a,frosted area then put it somewhere where,it doesn't get frosted on so bring it,inside so i'm even actually going to,bring this inside this winter and i have,to remind myself lizzy,don't put it out in the sun so anyway,this is it with this tabula forme that,i'm not supposed to buy that i bought so,hopefully this one will grow better with,me,don't die,i've already taken out my,my chevrolet subsisilis varigata so this,is my original plan this is the first,one i've got and it was just so slow as,you can see it's still small and this is,the second so i have to go and buy,another one this one i've already had,chopped this so this is the head and the,body is still inside growing under the,grow light so this two has been growing,under the grow light i just taken this,out a few days ago along with my,echeveria compton carousel so compton,carousel is doing really well inside i,don't know how she'd far

Aeonium tabuliforme (Dinner Plate Aeonium) - Best Growing Tips

Aeonium tabuliforme (Dinner Plate Aeonium) - Best Growing Tips

hello and welcome to brainy gardener,today it is all about how to grow and,care for the aeonium tabula form,aeonium tabula form is a truly unique,species and a testament to nature's,symmetry,the flat-topped aeonium sometimes,referred to as the dinner plate aeonium,is one of the most striking looking,succulents,it is a unique aeonium that stands out,from the rest of the genus because of,its strangely shaped rosette,it is an evergreen succulent with a flat,rosette of broad rounded and soft leaves,the leaves measure three to five inches,in length and have a waxy smooth texture,they are often bordered with white,silvery gray or brownish hairs that give,them a slightly furry appearance,the leaves are arranged on top of each,other growing radially outward,as a result they won't bend or curve,inwards like most rosettes but rather,stay completely flat resulting in the,iconic dinner plant shape,eonium tabula form is a,beginner-friendly succulent at an,undemanding house plant ionium tabula,form like full sun but can tolerate,partial shade,so set it out in the open if you have a,bright sunny spot on your patio that,gets at least six to eight hours of,direct sunlight per day,and you have no worries about the plant,safety from the hot afternoon sun,in most scenarios sunburn is not an,issue,however best practice dictates that we,seek to prevent rather than treat,so avoid setting your plan's pot out in,the open during the peak afternoon,the first and most important rule of,watering is to avoid over watering,water your plant deeply but ensure that,the excess water drains quickly and,efficiently,compared to other succulents adapted for,living in hot deserts aeoniums have much,shallower root systems even though,they're drought tolerant and will,survive on less water than many other,plants they still need regular watering,water it when it feels dry to the touch,if it feels moist wait until the next,day before watering again eonium tubular,form requires temperatures between 65,and 75 degrees fahrenheit,it cannot tolerate a temperature of less,than 45 degrees fahrenheit for a long,time as such should be avoided,when temperatures dip below freezing,outside or even indoors if it's too cold,in general,your plant may become damaged because,its roots are too sensitive,so bring it inside a heated room during,frosty weather until spring arrives,again,these succulents need humidity of around,50 percent for best results,these plants prefer higher humidity,levels than many other succulents so,check on them regularly throughout the,year to ensure they're getting what they,need,note that aeoniums are not heavy feeders,fertilize aeonium tabulaform in spring,and fall when new growth appears,use a balanced fertilizer one that,contains nitrogen phosphorus and,potassium in equal amounts,these fertilizers are labeled 10 to 10,10 in most cases and all nurseries have,them in stock aeonium tubular form can,be propagated by stem cuttings leaf,cuttings and seeds,to propagate using stem cuttings remove,stems from healthy plants in mid-spring,leave at least three inches of stock on,each cutting,cut off any damaged leaves,store each cutting in a dry spot so they,have plenty of time to heal up,once that's done place them into warm,moist soil and provide humidity,roots will start to grow over the next,few weeks,when using leaf cuttings take a leaf,cutting from a healthy specimen,allow the cutting to callus over,then plant it in a pot having balanced,soil and good drainage,place the pot somewhere in a warm spot,and ensure plenty of humidity,propagation using seeds is an excellent,way but takes a long time the process is,simple,first bury the seeds one inch deep in a,potter tray filled with moist,well-draining growing medium,cover them lightly with more soil if,needed,maintain warm temperatures and humid,conditions,wait for the seeds to germinate aeonium,tubular form generally needs to be,repotted every two to three years,these plants require a balanced soil mix,that drains quickly and has plenty of,inorganic matter,choose a pot that is larger than the old,container,the new container must have holes in its,bottom for drainage,since aeoniums are succulents they hate,having their roots waterlogged,therefore your soil needs to be amended,with inorganic materials like gravel,perlite or pumice to improve drainage,heliums love bright spots,they don't mind partial shade but do,best when given full sun exposure during,the day,remove the plant gently from its pot,remove all old soil from around the root,system,add fresh potting medium to the new pot,and fill it with about one-third,place your plant in the center of the,pot and gently firm down around the base,after a week the plant should have,settled down its roots properly,it is now safe to water and you can,proceed with the regular care routine,eonium tabula form is considered to be,non-toxic for pets,these succulents are susceptible to,acids mealybugs and scale insects,aphids suck zap from your plant and,secrete

How to care for Dinner plate plant #succulence

How to care for Dinner plate plant #succulence

let's face it we all have that one plant,we can't get enough of,this is mine,unfortunately i can't show you all of,them i have quite a few of them in my,garden that was just a quick view of,some of them,this is the dinner plate plant they are,part of the,a herniam family,eunium helium iron,ionia ionium,ionium,this one,is bright green,with red edges they get these red edges,if they are exposed to enough sunlight,this one is not as big as,how the dinner plate can get,my biggest one that i have,got about 30 centimeters but i know they,can grow a lot bigger the original,dinner plate plants are just bright,green without the red edges,but just like the original dinner plate,plant these guys like to grow under a,tree or,if they're outside under some cover,just to protect them from too much,direct sunlight if they get too much,direct sunlight their leaves will curl,up to retain water growing them in a,moist shaded area will help to extend,their growing period and their growing,period is usually from winter to spring,with nice cool temperatures from about,65 to 75 degrees fahrenheit and that is,18 to 24 degrees celsius it's nice to,know that there are winter succulents,out there or succulents that likes to,grow in the shade although their active,growing period is in the winter just,keep in mind to water to only water them,when the soil is completely dried out so,these green and red succulents with its,large rosette shape,flower tend to grow quite vigorously and,can shoot out quite a lot,of,rosette-shaped babies,almost like a seahorse if you look under,the mother plant you will see,multiple babies growing the mother can,start producing all these babies within,a year that you plant her with the right,conditions the thicker stem usually,leads up to the mother plants,and,you will see to the bottom and to the,sides all the babies growing and they,will also shoot out roots as soon as,they start touching the ground i,sometimes wonder what does the one plate,say to the other plate,dinner is on me,so maybe if you never have enough plates,when guests come over maybe it's a good,idea to propagate them i uploaded a,video last week about how i propagated,these guys i did a water propagation,and i am looking into doing some leaf,propagations as well,but this is my result of the water,propagation,this is only one of them i propagated,multiples of them that's why i have so,many in my garden,another way to always propagate these,guys is with stem cutting,you can just take a clean pair of,scissors,and cup,of a baby,and then you can just put it in the,ground,and that will start shooting out roots,also in about two to three weeks,and another way of course is just to,wait for the babies to start sprouting,out their own roots and to take on the,ground you can just remove it and then,just plant the baby with the roots,like i said before i would like to try,the leaf propagation,let me know if you did and how it worked,out for you guys i think i am going to,take a few leaves,of this guy,and propagate them,so all you do is,remove,the leaves from the mother plants,and then i'm just gonna lay them on soil,and see what happens,just food for food,if you like having them in a container,it's maybe just a good idea to repot,them every two to three years to ensure,that they have enough space to grow,as well to prevent root rots well,that seems to be it from me this week i,hope you all have a nice planting me,bye,you

All About AEONIUM with Debra Lee Baldwin

All About AEONIUM with Debra Lee Baldwin

hello there annie from mountain crest gardens  here and today i'm with our succulent expert debra  ,lee baldwin and we are talking about aeoniums  aeoniums are amazing they're a really fun genus  ,so we're going to discuss a little bit about why  this is a cool plant how you can ship them and  ,then how to plant and grow them yes aeoniums  grow so well in certain parts of the country  ,other parts you're going to want to keep them  in a shelter more of a sheltered environment  ,they're winter growers which is kind  of unusual for succulents a lot of them  ,come from the canary islands off the coast of  africa um starting with the baby aeoniums and  ,this is what the one thing you need to remember  about aeoniums and and this is how you package  ,them when you ship them these came from mountain  crest you notice how they came in these sleeves  ,and not all plants come in sleeves but the ones  where the leaves really have to be protected  ,do come in the sleeves the thing about aeoniums  is they're very prone to abrasion damage  ,and what i see often is brides will have made hair  ornaments using these beautiful striped aeoniums  ,and they've made them a day or two days before  and by the time they're wearing them they've  ,got black lines on them that have shown up from  being handled too much so to keep your aeoniums  ,looking pristine and perfect uh don't handle  the leaves it's basically so i picked this  ,pot to pair pair these striped aeoniums with but  before we do that let's look at some of the others  ,that came this is one of my favorites this is  aeonium lily pad and it has really nice thick  ,leaves real juicy leaves yes thicker than most  aeoniums so it almost looks like an echeveria  ,it does or echeveria and they're always a little  bit kind of sticky they've got a little bit of  ,glabrous stickiness is that right i hadn't noticed  you can kind of feel the little little cilia  ,when you meet an aeonium for the first time  pet it oh okay yeah because some of them have a  ,fine fuzziness to them oh fantastic yeah so  whenever you meet an aeonium pet it give it a  ,pet okay yeah okay yeah so these ones you know  a lot of them bruise and they're tough to ship  ,because those leaves are so thin especially if  they're dry and a little bit thirsty but lily pad  ,i completely agree it's one of the more robust  of the aeoniums now this i consider a fragile  ,aeonium and i'm really delighted to have it i'm  going to be very careful to protect this this  ,is not going to go out in the open garden this  is going to go in a sheltered place on my deck  ,it won't lose its variegation in shade or bright  shade i don't recommend deep shade for these  ,um but this is um let me see if i can remember  what it's called sun drops real nice sun cup sun  ,but it says here aeonium castello-paivae varagata  sun cup okay so the sun cup aeonium i've killed in  ,the past so i'm going to be very careful with that  and since you're brushing i'll let you brush the  ,sun cup so just you know keep in mind when you  see a plant that's got a special sleeve on it  ,to to remember that means you probably don't want  to touch or abrade the leaves and with succulents  ,in general you don't want to touch the leaves  any more than you have to this plant gosh this  ,is zwartkop aeonium zwartkop meaning it's from the  german meaning black i can remember when the world  ,discovered zwartkop and everybody wanted them and  now they're in everybody's yards and and they're  ,black plants yeah very special but let's pop these  into this pot and then we'll look at some aeoniums  ,as these would look as they get bigger now this  is a non-draining pot so i'm adding some pumice  ,now pumice does not take the place of drainage  it merely absorbs excess moisture and that's  ,an important distinction because you do  not add pebbles to the bottom of a pot  ,to try to create drainage it's a stupid  concept of people for some i know it's  ,like an old livestream it's a myth that persists  it's a persistent myth uh there's no way you can  ,create drainage in a non-draining pot that's just  ridiculous i wish it were possible but it's not  ,and i think i'm going to add some of this  nice coarse bonsai jack soil on top of the  ,pumice so we're going to give it a really and  then just a little bit of regular potting soil  ,i love bonsai jack it's wonderfully coarse yeah  yeah and i like the look of it too i really use  ,it for top dressings as well as yeah it makes a  good top dressing and i added some to the mix and  ,i'll also add some for top dressing now what i'm  doing is i'm just uh you know throwing away the  ,the the nursery container over there and you can  see a little bit of abrasion on the underside of  ,these leaves which is i would expect and no  worries the lower leaves are the first to go  ,so if they do have a little bit of abrasion on  them that's normal that's a what happens during  ,shipping and you mentioned um aeonium arboreum yes  whic
