Q.What To Do With A Mother Of Thousands’ Plantlets

Anonymous added on May 9, 2021 | Answered

Hi, my mother of thousands started growing plantlets and I didn’t want to grow another, so I removed them from the parent plant – but then I put them in the soil of my plant, and now I’m wondering if these will start growing and competing with my main plant – should I remove them and throw them away? Or should I leave them? (And what should I do when plantlets start growing from the plant again?) Thanks 🙂

If you don't want it to grow with your other plants, take it out. You can give the babies away, throw them in a compost pile, or just throw them away. Any plant is usually easy to give away if you start asking friends or neighbors. You could always put some in a container and let them grow outside, too, or just in a garden bed. (They aren't hardy outside, however.)
