How To Propagate Succulents In 4 Steps

via Pro Flowers

  1. Remove the lower leaves off the stem by wiggling side to side.

2. After removing lower leaves, place them face up in potting soil.

3. Now, wait (a few days to one week) until the ends of each leaf dry up and callous over.

4. Once wilted, place each leaf back in potting soil to start growing roots and a whole new plant again.

Succulent Watering Tips

When it comes to watering your succulents, it is suggested that the leaves should be gently sprayed – keep a water bottle on standby.

It is also important that you don’t go overboard. Succulents do not need much water at all. In the later stages of growth, only water the surface of the terrain when it becomes dry.
