Water verses Soil: SUCCULENT PROPAGATION EXPERIMENT

Today I began a new succulent Propagation method which I heard on YouTube last night.
Propagation of leaves in water per the method is said to supercharge the leaf into quickly presenting roots and which I find amazing, an actual set of new leaves or what appears to be a mini succulent at the tip of leaf. That was evident just at 2 weeks.
The presenter placed leaves between toothpicks which were taped together to hold leaves which are suspended in water.
I have no toothpicks but I did have straws and mini-thin popsicle sticks. I thought that wooden/bamboo skewers or an old toy called I believe Pick up Sticks would be more efficient holding more than 2-3 leaves. The water is in recycled plastic containers. I'm fortunate, I'm single thus I eat a lot of TV Frozen Meals. I also hoard for future use as inspired, a lot of recyclables.
So I collected leaves, this method does not work with calloused leaf ends. So with fresh leaves of all sizes and species I with good old duct tape put together leaves which I suspended the tips in water.
Now I leave you with photos of my "nursery" that include my experiment. I will update here in this community regular photo accounts of this water Propagation verses soil Propagation.

πŸ˜€πŸ‘€πŸŒ΅πŸŒžπŸŒ΅πŸ‘€Please like and comment your thoughts. Most of all PLEASE JOIN THIS COMMUNITY. We need you!!! We need to share our succulent knowledge that differs greatly over our succulent lovers in moderate climates.
Our knowledge is valuable to other lovers growing succulents who face our common challenges.
Stay tuned... water Propagation updates as soon as I see the first change.

Okra plants will generally keep producing throughout the growing season as long as keeping harvesting okra pods, Dried Okra Pods rapidly become fibrous and woody, and to be edible, must be harvested within a week of the fruits having been pollinated. https://youtu.be/gVDQ11ieBxA

There is nothing more satisfying as growing your own vegetables and eating them fresh right out of the garden. The herb garden need not be the monoculture garden of old. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y46Mmu7OEJ0

Mulch should be applied when planting so as to retain soil wetness, suppress weeds and defend roots.
Spreading mulch over bare soil helps prevent weeds, keeps soil moist longer and makes your yard look neat and tidy.
