I’m pretty new as well :)

I live in a really really humid and rainy place, so there’s no need to trap in extra moisture, I can barely escape it myself (I’ve never had a winter with propping though, so I have no idea how that’s going to go)

I have started using the rooting hormones as well, and I think it helps some of them? I need to do a comparison, but I haven’t had the time, ha ha...

I try not to mist the ones still stuck on the mother leaves. I’ve heard it’s best to let them take all the nutrients from the mamas before watering, so I try to do that. I’ll drip water on the roots if they look dried out, however.

Something I have also kinda figured out though, is that a lot of them, no matter how much I try to do the “right” stuff, just don’t make it. Which really sucks, and I’m sure some of it is my inexperience, but...some of them just die.

This big boy came right out of the gate growing huge and strong. I honestly didn’t have to do anything at all.

BUT!! For the watering, I’ve decided to try more targeted watering, and I’ve just ordered [this watering bottle](Pack Plant Flower Succulent Watering Bottle Plastic Bend Mouth Watering Cans Squeeze Bottle-250ML and 500ML https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016F0F0Q2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_cZXRDbDJZW6NP) to target the roots. Some of the other posters have mentioned it being good to avoid the leaves when watering. So I’m gonna try that :)

I’ve also gone and picked up [this succulent food]( Miracle-Gro Succulent Plant Food, 8 OZ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MFDALY4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_e3XRDbRHYJ1EV) for the plants that have broken free of the mama leaf.

Sorry for this wall of text!! I hope some of it helps :)

This is the one I’ve had the longest and works pretty well as a supplement, I just bought two similar ones that are square that seem to be doing okay so far but they’ve only been up for a week. I also have these for my early stage prop area but they have to be super close to the plant to work. I pretty much ignore my props until they’re big enough to move to their own pots or arrangements, so having a timer helps! My neighbors definitely think I’m growing marijuana but it’s okay.

Sorry for the mobile links couldn’t figure out how to change them.

Edit: And here is my current setup with lights on, I’m planning on lights for the bottom shelves as well and some hanging hooks for my non succulent plants!

this grow light from Amazon was going around r/houseplants for a minute. Of course I impulse bought it. I’ve never had one but I really like it because it’s flexible with a clamp. I do believe my plants are happier. My succulents were extremely etiolated before, but now they’re growing well!

Edit: I also love the timer function and have it on the 12 hour interval

I recommend it, Good luck!

Remember to secure the plastic wrap with tape or a rubberband. I am using a rubberband. I also have a squeezable squirt water bottle with a pointy nozzle on it to keep the water level touching the plastic. Just poke a hole to squirt water in, makes it much easier.

I use a few different ones: first is a Root farm LED which gives me AMAZING results. https://www.amazon.com/Root-Farm-10101-10135-1-All-Purpose-Light/dp/B074SG33M2 - they’re pretty pricey so I also have this one that’s more affordable and it’s been doing amazing too!!

We haven't found ones we particularly like at our house since we're always switching up our ~grand vision~ for our plants, lol. This one was the darling of r/houseplants for a while. Definitely search here, r/houseplants, r/succulents, or even r/plants for more suggestions. Threads about them pop up all the time.

u/Sancticunt · 3 pointsr/proplifting

I have my bananas in a wide, shallow bowl, and they are very happy. Strings don't need deep pots because their roots don't take up much space, and this style of pot increases surface area for more rooting locations.

Trimming is a personal preference! A lot of people trim so they can throw the strands on top, encouraging new growth. Or they do it to keep the strands even because they can grow lopsided sometimes.

I would recommend a shop vac over a regular vacuum cleaner. They’re made for messier messes and can handle moisture, while moisture can fuck up your everyday vacuum.

My next step would be to either rent a rug doctor from the hardware store or buy a bissell wet vacuum off of Amazon. They’re iirc $120 or less depending on the size of the vacuum and the amount of cleaners and accessories you buy. Lastly, I’d recommend getting some kind of rug or plastic mat to put under your plant area so that cleanup is a lot easier next time. You could get a really cute runner or something like this. It’s clear so it won’t mess with the color scheme of the room and it’s so very practical. Plus, it comes in multiple sizes!

Amazon has lots of good options. These are the small 12 cell trays https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07Q3PRH79/ref=sspa_mw_detail_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I really like the smaller trays because I can lift them up and inspect my props closely. I've been battling a SERIOUS case of mealybugs for almost a month now so the smaller trays are easier to maneuver.

The larger cell tray came from Home Depot and was only a few bucks. It's also a great option if you want something more compact.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H57K565/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_96A4CbQ9MQEJN is this the light youre using? let me know how you like it, it looks pretty perfect for my window setup & relatively inexpensive!

u/Kris10NC · 5 pointsr/proplifting

All I can say is Seedling Trays!

Mine go from Prop Tray > Seedling Tray > larger pots with lots of props > getting thinned down from there

This is what I got if you're interested! (I also love the tiny tools!!)

u/wruwtrix · 2 pointsr/proplifting

I don't mist mine at all. Water thoroughly when the leaves start to wrinkle or soften a little bit. Make sure the pot has drainage. I use a squeeze bottle like this ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BTRH3SL ) to get water close to the roots and not on the plant when they're new. Most in the sub will suggest you bottom water (set in a container with water to wet the soil and then let the water drain) to promote root growth.

u/niwenwowowenshei · 3 pointsr/proplifting

I just use a squeeze bottle like this (just the first one I found on amazon): https://www.amazon.ca/Flower-Watering-Bottle-Garden-Transparent/dp/B00XHN9NUK

But this is exactly what I do too, I water a small amount every couple of days to encourage root growth

u/icygir · 1 pointr/proplifting

Of course! I bought this bulb. I like it a lot, but I want to eventually upgrade my setup haha

u/h1dd3n-pr0cess · 2 pointsr/proplifting

amazon link

Price went up to $27 overnight evidently. I paid $19.99 last night! I chose this one because it has a clamp to clip onto my table, 60W vs most others with 30W, and 3 wand arms that will work perfectly for me because I use a corner area for my plants. This will fan out perfectly. Also has timers and color modes. I don’t know much about the different light modes, but plan on doin some in depth research and experimentation!

u/thextrickster · 5 pointsr/proplifting

It’s actually a bonsai soil mix from Amazon!

u/Canary1226 · 2 pointsr/proplifting

Okay! Lol I thought about it after and was like...did I just make a really dumb reply....turns out I did. 😂 the soil is from superfly bonsai.

A link for your convenience and to make up for my derpyness. 😁

They are a little more expensive but I ordered some of these a while ago and I’ve reused them several times now.

Not trying to knock you OP but I don’t own a 3D printer! :)

I like these. The bulbs are replaceable and the plug is a traditional plug (rather than a USB into adapter as many are... those wear out very quickly because the adapters are cheap and don't sit in the socket right, but the lights will blow other adapters). I also like that they're white light. When I had the purple bulbs I lost the ability to enjoy my plants as they naturally are because they were always bathing in ugly magenta light.

Still trying to figure out exactly what your prop is. I had the same exact one. Etoliated it the same way before I learned. I can't find the marker for it. I'll keep my eye out next time I'm at the store.

u/Watchingpornwithcas · 5 pointsr/proplifting

Of course! It's this one. Only downside is it doesn't have a built-in timer, but that's easy enough to remedy.
