The original plant came in this tiny
hanging pot. This is a cutting.
The original plant behind and a cutting with some leaves with tiny sprouts.
Do you see the butterfly on the big plant?
If you touch this plant or bump the pot, jelly-bean-like leaves fall off. Each leaf is capable of making another plant. A faster way is to break off a small piece, which is probably going to happen anyway.
Every little leafe grows a plant. Isn't that neat?
Here are the notes I took:
Water Cacti and succulents at night. All members of the Crassulaea family = dicots
CAM: Crassulacean Acid Metabolism
CO2 entering the stomata at night is converted into organic acids.
Calvin Cycle: CO2 +H2O → C6H12O2 (glucose) +O2 +ATP (energy) carrier.
I comprehend it. I cannot explain it in detail. We all know about photosynthesis.
So far I am still watering when I think of it, but I will make an effort to water at night wthen the nights are warm. When the weather turns cold again most of these plants will not need frequent water.
