How to Propagate Succulents??

We’ll start by removing the lower leaves first.

Be careful when you remove the leaves from the stem. You want to be sure you get the entire leaf. If you break the leaf, leaving the base still attached to the stem, it will not be able to grow roots or a new plant.

After you have successfully removed the lower leaves you will be left with a small rosette on a long bare stem. Then use a pair of craft scissors or a sharp knife to cut the head.

Now we wait..... Before we can place our leaves on soil to begin growing new plants we must let the ends dry out. This step is vital! If you don’t let the ends dry out and place them directly on soil they will absorb too much moisture and they will rot and die. This could take anywhere from a few days to a week or so.

Once you feel like the ends are dry enough, you can place them on top of cactus or succulent soil. After a few weeks you will see little pink roots sprouting from the ends of the leaves and then teeny tiny baby plants will begin to grow. Keep in mind, not every leaf will grow a new plant....but it's okay I water the leaves very rarely until I start to see roots or babies appearing. I let my baby plants grow in rows like this until I start to notice the “mother leaf” starting to wither. 

Once the leaves grow slightly can start to repot or if you're running out of new pots, just leave the plants grow there altogether.

Okay, back to that stump....Simply put this pot aside and eventually it will begin to sprout new plants from each place we removed a leaf! 

Now back to our original plant...once the stem has dried out, simply place your plant back in a pot with well-draining cactus or succulent soil and it will grow roots again and continue to flourish!

HELP! My Succulents is dying....

For your information, dying leaves don’t always mean your succulent is dying. In fact, as with all plants, succulent leaves don’t live forever. As the plant grows it creates new leaves and the older ones die. So, if your succulent has dry, crispy leaves at the bottom of the plant and only at the bottom, you don’t need to worry. This is normal....   :)

If the leaves start to get unsightly or bother you, gently pull them away from the base of the plant and throw them away. Only pull off the leaves that come off easily or are totally dead. Now, if the upper leaves (the new growth) on your succulent aren’t looking so great, you’ll want to take notice and determine what might be causing the change. If the leaves are starting to look yellow and  transparent, and feel soggy or mushy to the touch, it’s likely you’ve over watered. 

How to "prune" your succulents.:
