Succulents derive their name from the Greek word for sap, ‘succus’. The plants are able to retain a large volume of water so they can survive in arid regions. There are many species, including echeveria, rhipsalis and sempervivum. Nurseries produce a wide range of succulents as house or garden plants or for planters.
What is the challenge you face as a succulent grower?
Succulents by nature often have a somewhat more extensive root system. The shoots for propagation are also quite coarse, making it difficult to plant a shoot in a fixed plug. Which is why many shoots are planted in loosely filled trays with substrate. Once the plant has formed enough roots, it can be potted up for the next phase. Many growers are looking for ways to deliver faster and automate the cultivation process.
