How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Afterglow'

Echeveria ‘Afterglow' can be propagated from offsets, stem cuttings, or leaves.

Offsets

‘Afterglow' will produce offsets along its short stem. Remove these using a sharp, sterile knife or pair of scissors. Allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting in well-draining soil.

Cuttings

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.

Leaves

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.
