Saving a broken-off succulent depends on the damage. If the leaves start to fall, you can just let them dry for three days. If the stem is decapitated, keep it away until it gets callused. When you notice these changes, you can then place it on cactus soil, and it’ll grow roots in a few weeks.

Cut the stem, just above a leaf. You can take your cutting from the top of the succulent or from an offshoot.
