Propagating Dudleya Succulents from Seed

We start our seed propagation of Dudleya brittonii in fall when the temperatures start cooling down but before the daylight hours get too short and temperatures drop too low.

Dudleyas do not like the summer heat and go through a period of partial summer dormancy, so propagation is generally much more successful during the cooler months.

Aside from Dudleya brittonii, we are beginning to seed Dudleya hassei as well.
