How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Misty Lilac'

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


To grow ‘Misty Lilac' 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.


To propagate ‘Misty Lilac' 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.


‘Misty Lilac' will produce offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
