Propagating Haworthia Globosiflora 

Haworthia Globosiflora is propagated by seeds, offsets, leaves, and cuttings. It doesn't require frequent repotting. The first-time repotting should be done after getting it from the store. And like other succulents, use well-drained soil.  

Propagating by Leaves

The method is straightforward. Pick a leaf from the mother plant carefully. The leaf must be healthy, and no part should be left on the stem for this method to work.  

Keep the leaf for days until it forms callus. Plant in well-drained soil and add enough water. Every time soil dries out, add water.  

Propagation by Cuttings

Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut a leaf for propagation. Once you have the leaf, allow it to form callus before replanting. Plant in well-drained soil and add water. And when the soil dries out, add water.  

Propagation by Offsets

Haworthia Globosiflora can be propagated from offsets. However, the mother plant will take years before producing an offset. Once available, remove it from the mother plant.

Clean the extra soil and wait until callus is formed before replanting. Plant in well-drained soil and water to get a new succulent plant. And once the soil dries out, add water.  

Propagation by seeds

Seeds take long before they can form and mature. Even though propagation is possible, this method should be avoided. Take the seeds and plant them in a well-drained soil outdoor. Add water when the soil dries out. Indoor propagation is recommended in cool environment areas.
