How to Propagate Echeveria minima
Echeveria minimacan can be grown from offsets or leaves.
There will be small offsets around the base of the plant. Pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for a day or two.
To grow Echeveria minima from leaves, twist a leaf from the mother plant. You will have a smaller chance of success if you don’t keep the leaf on the stem.
Allow the leaf to dry out for a few days so that the end callouses over, and then place on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil is dry.
