How to Propagate Echeveria harmsii “Plush Plant”

Echeveria harmsii “Plush Plant” is a great succulent to propagate, as it is able to be grown in several different ways.

Leaves

Simply choose a firm, healthy leaf. Remove it from the main plant by gently twisting the leaf from the stem. Be sure not to leave any of the leaf on the stem (if you take a bit of the stem with the leaf, that’s fine, too!).

Allow the leaf to callous over for several days, and then lay on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried completely. After roots and a rosette have appeared, and the mother leaf has withered away, plant the new growth.

Cuttings

To propagate Echeveria harmsii “Plush Plant” from cuttings, use a sharp, sterile knife or pair of scissors and cut a piece of the plant just above a leaf on the stem. Allow it to dry for a couple of days, and place in well-draining soil.

Seeds

If propagating from seed, sow in a well-draining soil in the fall. You can grow your Echeveria harmsii “Plush Plant” seeds outdoors if you live in an zone above 9a. If you live in a cooler area, you can begin sowing indoors under a grow light.
