How to Propagate Sedum album “White Stonecrop”

Sedum album “White Stonecrop” can be propagated from cuttings, leaves, or seeds.


To grow “White Stonecrop” 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.


“White Stonecrop” will occasionally drop leaves, which can root where they fall. If you take a leaf for propagation, 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.


Sow your seeds in a well-draining soil. You can grow Sedum 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 or on a seed mat.
