How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Afterglow’
Echeveria ‘Afterglow’ can be propagated from offsets, stem cuttings, or leaves.

To grow Echeveria ‘Afterglow’ from cuttings, use 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.
When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem.
Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.
