Propagate your own succulents


Our earlier post, Succulents Save, described the use of succulents as versatile landscape option. Here is an environmentally conscious, inexpensive way you can propagate them yourself.

1.
Pull the leaf off neatly
If using a knife, clean the knife thoroughly before slicing.

2.
Allow to dry out for 3-5 days
Place on dry soil and in indirect sunlight.

3.
Water lightly when soil is dry
Overwatering can cause these succulents to rot.

4.
Replant
After establishing a good root system you can replant to your hearts content!
