How to Propagate Crassula rogersii

Crassula rogersii is easily propagated, and can be propagated by offsets and leaves.


As it grows, Crassula rogersii branches out on woody stems. Each stem can be cut to propagate more plants. Using a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors, remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.


To propagate Crassula rogersii from leaves, twist a leaf from the mother plant. Be sure that none of the leaf remains on the stem, or you will have a smaller chance of success.

Allow the leaf to dry out for several days so that the end callouses over, and then place on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil is completely dry.
