Xerosicyos danguyi – Silver Dollar Plant – Cuttings Care
Place your Xerosicyos danguyi cutting upright in good quality Cactus and Succulent Soil after the cut wound has dried. The soil must be dry or almost dry to prevent rotting. Use low light and temperatures of 18-24 C. After 2-3 weeks you may give some water to encourage root formation. In the meantime the cuttting likes to be sprayed with water once every two days to prevent dehydration. If you are rooting in a more humid environment like a greenhouse then this is usually not needed. Roots normally form in 4-6 weeks depending on your conditions.
Xerosicyos danguyi – Silver Dollar Plant – Plant Care
Rooted plants and cuttings need plenty of warmth, sun and water. They are not true succulents but more something in between normal plants and succulents. They like bright light but not direct sunlight (experiment a bit with this). Temperatures of 22-28 C are best when they are actively growing. Give them some cactus fertilizer each month when they are growing. Water them only when the soil is dry again or almost dry. Keep Xerosicyos danguyi around 15-18 C in winter and keep almost dry.

Succulent Grow Lights for your Xerosicyos danguyi
