One of the best things about succulents is how easy they are to propagate and grow! Here is a step by step guide for propagating succulents from leaves.

Step one:

To propagate a succulent from a leaf, carefully twist the leaf off the stem making sure you keep the base of the leaf in tact and that nothing gets left on the stem.

Step two:

Fill your propagation tray with succulent soil, or coarse propagation sand. Place your succulents leaves on top and let it dry out for a couple of weeks. Avoid placing the propagation tray in direct sun until the plants are well established.

Step three:

Once the leaves have started sprouting roots from the ends you can start to gently spray them with water once a week.

Step four:

Once the leaves have well established roots, then you’re ready to re-plant them into a bigger pot with succulent soil! Always pay attention to the watering habits and make sure you do not overwater in the initial stages of growth.
