How to Propagate Succulents

Succulents are easy to propagate and a fun project for the inexperienced gardener. With so many gorgeous varieties of succulents available they are the perfect plant to propagate and enjoy in your garden or home.

Step 1. Snap off a leaf from a succulent ensuring you make a clean break off the stem of the succulent plant.

Step 2. Place the leaf in an undercover area in the sun for three days to a week. A callus will form on the base of the leaf where the roots will grow.

Step 3. Once the tiny roots have started to form, replant into pots with drainage holes with good quality succulent potting mix. Water.

Step 4. Keep the pots in a sunny spot and water every one to two weeks making sure the potting mix is completely dried out before watering again. In a few months you will have a brand new succulent plant.
