Succulents are among the easiest plants to propagate and grow, and thus make succulent photo excellent projects for the school greenhouse. Even students who have never grown a plant in their life will find easy success with succulents.
Succulents have a strong pull on our imagination. Their bizarre shapes appeal to us because they are so different from most other plants in our world. The succulents of the tropics and subtropics expand our concept of what a plant should look like.
This program was designed to give students a look at the huge variety of fascinating succulents and to spark their interest in growing and propagating these interesting plants. Students learn about soil, water, containers, fertilizing, temperature requirements and much more. Everything necessary for students to successfully select, grow, pot and propagate succulents is clearly explained and illustrated.
The technical advisor on this program is Daniel Lassanske, emeritus professor of horticulture at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He is widely recognized and admired for his knowledge of growing succulents, as well as his dedication to horticultural education. Many of his students have gone on to become ag-ed teachers, and they learned their love of horticulture from Dan Lassanske. Thanks to his dedication throughout the production of this program, we are confident that this is the ultimate educational video about growing succulents.
The producers of this video enjoyed being around these plants so much that we’ve started our own succulent collection. We are sure your students will enjoy it too and will get “hooked on succulents.”
