Succulents are very hardy and long lasting. They’re low maintenance and quick to grow. They come in a range of colors and textures and you can even make a Succulent Ball.
Because the leaves are so waxy and thick, you can propagate them into new plants. The great news is it’s a very easy process.
They’re a perfect project for first-time gardeners and they are so hardy that it’s virtually impossible to kill them!

How To Propagate Succulents In 4 Steps
- Remove the lower leaves off the stem by wiggling side to side
- After removing lower leaves, place them face up in potted soil
- Now wait (a few days to one week) until the ends of each leaf dry up and callous over.
- Once wilted, place each leaf back in potted soil to start growing roots and a whole new plant again. Gently water the leaves with a light spray, but not too much. Later, just water the surface of the terrain when it becomes dry.
