Painted Lady Overview
Echeveria derenbergii is an evergreen succulent perennial or sub-shrub that is grown as an indoor plant. This succulent plant is commonly known by the name Painted Lady. The leaves are obovate-shaped, grow in rosettes and have colourful edges. These develop into deeper colourations with increasing sun exposure. Flowers grow on short stalks above the succulent rosettes of foliage, they are small, cup-shaped and coloured red and yellow.
How to propagate Painted Lady
Can be propagated from leaves, simply remove cleanly from the mother plant, let callus for a few days until the wound has closed and place on soil or in water and wait for roots to develop. Roots usually grow first to seek out water, followed by new leaves. This may take anywhere from a week to a few months and there is no need to water propagating succulents as they will glean all the nutrition and moisture they require from their mother leaf, which will shrivel up over time. The original leaf may be gently removed once it has dried up and become crispy in texture, only remove if it comes away easily otherwise you risk damaging the baby plant.
