Many of you have been doing an amazing job propagating your succulent leaves but aren’t sure what the next step is. We get a ton of questions about what to do after new roots and rosettes grow. We’re here to help! (If you aren’t sure how to propagate your succulent leaves to create more baby succulents, here’s how.)
Here’s the scoop:
• 🌵 After your propagated leaf has grown a new rosette and roots, you will eventually want to plant it in cactus soil.
• 🍁 The leaf you propagated will become shriveled, at which point you can gently twist and pull it off.
• 🌱 You’re then left with the rosette and roots! Nestle the roots into the soil and leave the rosette sitting on top.
• 🍃 If your propagated succulent is big enough to plant but the original leaf is still alive OR if the original leaf isn’t coming off and you’re worried about breaking the plant, don’t stress! Just plant the old leaf in the soil along with the new roots, or leave it on top of the soil with the new rosette. Either way, it will eventually die and you can discard it.
