Succulents are not only easy to care for, easy to propagate by taking your own cuttings! Cuttings ready? Take your cuttings!
Propagating succulents: what you need
– A succulent
– A clean and sharp knife/scissors
– Small cutting pot
– Cutting soil
– A pot of patience
Note! It is important to let the cuttings, leaves and stems, dry before you put them in the ground. The leaves will tear off and your cutting will have to recover for a while. So leave it on kitchen paper for a week before putting it back in the ground. Give these little friends a good portion of indirect sunlight too and leave them here for three to seven days.
Propagating succulents with loose leaves
Many species of succulents you can take cuttings using just one leaf baby. For a leaf cutting, carefully twist off a leaf from your amigo. This is because roots and eventually whole new plants can grow from each leaf of your mommy/daddy to be! Just a check before we continue; did you give your cuttings three to seven days of rest on that kitchen paper? Job well done! Now for the easy stuff: just put the leaf babies on the loose cutting soil. Give them a little water every three days, of course!
