An Simple Way to Get More Succulents for Free

Learn how to propagate succulents (grow more) from the ones you already own with this step-by-step tutorial on propagating succulents from leaves! 

To take a leaf for propagation, just gently twist the leaf off the stem. Make sure it's a clean pull, leaving nothing on the stem. In fact, it's fine to pull of a little of the stem, too. 

How to remove a leaf for propagation

Depending on the amount of heat and sunlight, you'll want to leave the leaf or cutting alone for one to three days, so it can scab over. 

Let your leaf or cutting dry out

If you're working with leaves, set them on top of the soil, making sure their ends don't actually touch the soil at all, and water them each time the soil dries out. Use a spray bottle to get the top of the soil wet. 

Watering your leaf

It takes some time for new rosettes and roots to form on succulent leaves. You can generally expect to see some results within 2-3 weeks.
