Lilac Mist (pp29643)

Lilac Mist (pp29643)

Scientific Name: Sedeveria Hybrid

Genus: Sedeveria

The lilac mist succulent is gorgeous! I remember going to home depot, and wandering by the plant section as i always do (i know you do the same!) and i saw this guy, in addition to Pachyphytum ‘Moon Silver’ succulent. They were huge and had amazing plump leaves! I grabbed them with the intention of propagating them to sell later. Once I made it home, I excitedly plucked off the leaves to callous over, and prepared a propagation station. Afterwards I realized I threw away the container without looking at the name of the plant! That is when I saw the ‘propagation prohibited’ label…

Propagation Prohibited???

Initially I was so confused and decided to research this, this plant is a hybrid created by Altman plants and they patented it, pp29643. This means that no one can propagate and SELL these plants without permission, this permission entails that you would then own Altman plants a commission on every succulent sold. I am just getting started with succulents and am not ready to try to get these permissions to sell these plants.

This actually is what inspired me to create a succulent library of all the plants I own. I wanted to keep track of all my succulents, in addition keep track of which ones are patented to make sure i’m extra careful to grow these ones just for personal enjoyment! I also realized I needed to go back and research the other plants I own to make sure there isn’t patents on those as well.

The Result 🙂

Luckily with the lilac mist succulent, i had the leaves separated into their own container for propagation. This made it easy to keep them straight from the other plants. I still enjoy my little container of the silver mist succulent babies and am happy I had this experience and learned about patented succulent varieties! I don’t want to be profiting on someone else’s hard work!
