Q.Haworthia attenuata, propagation question

Zone London | MaureenS added on August 23, 2019 | Answered

My plant recently had a flower spike. Nothing unusual there but there is a small plantlet growing on the spike. It is about 1.5 cm big now, no roots from it so how do I propagate from it….
The flower stalk beyond this little plant is dying back but from the main plant to it is ok….

The best way to propagate this is to bend it over into a pot of its own until it takes root. After this, you can sever it from the mother. You may have to bend the stalk until it creases to get it to stay down.
