Propagating succulents from leaves is the thing that took my life from being a succulent admirer to a full on addict. Seriously! What could be more fun than watching little baby plants grow from seemingly nothing?!

You propagate some succulents and I’ll propagate some succulents 🙂 Not sure how to propagate succulents from leaves? Click here to get instructions on how to start, or buy my ebook, The Secrets to Propagating Succulents, to learn about the whole process.
Tell me (and all our succulent friends) when you’ve started propagating by sharing a photo in our awesome Facebook Group!
We’ll help keep you consistent with watering and help you out along the journey to lots of new plants! If you don’t have succulents of your own to propagate from leaves, don’t worry.
You have some options:
- Ask a friend if you can have some leaves from their succulent
- Buy an easy to propagate succulent or two at your local Lowes, Home Depot, or Walmart and look for other succulents that have dropped some leaves (snag those and add them to the plant you buy)
- Buy as set of leaves from The Succulent Source to propagate (it’s a fun mystery to see what leaves you’ll get!)
Below you’ll see some updates of how my leaves are growing. I’m hoping these will motivate you to give it a try. It’s sooooo much fun!
Round 1 | Set 1
Started October 20, 2017 — These were photographed sporatically, but the dates are listed with each one. In the center of the orange tray are some cuttings (not succulents grown from leaves).
Also, these were kept outside in a Zone 9 climate. They experienced a few nights temperatures in the low 30s, but daily highs were approximately 65 F.
Watering has been inconsistent so growth has slowed.
Round 1 | Set 2
Second Set of Leaves Started on October 20, 2017
