What’s better than a succulent? A mini succulent or several mini succulent! Both are easy to achieve because unlike most plants, succulents don’t grow from seeds. Rather, they multiply through propagation.
Propagating a succulent is surprisingly simple. To start you’ll just need one succulent. The more mature and healthy a succulent is, the better results you’ll receive. Succulents that have shed too many leaves and look awkward are best.
Steps to propagate a succulent
Your cuttings will start growing succulent sprouts at the place of the cuts within 2-3 weeks. Not all leaves will successful sprout. Continue watering the leave cuttings and leaving them in direct sunlight. The sprouted leaves will quickly develop roots as well. Once they have grown to a sustainable size, you can separate the sprouts & roots from the leaf itself. Some leaves may have already begun to dry out and shrivel up.
