Place leaf cuttings directly on top of a shallow layer of succulent potting soil (do not bury) and mist with water to keep moist. Within three weeks or so, the leaf cuttings will begin to sprout tiny “pup” plants. Around eight weeks, the mother leaf will wither and fall off, and your pups are ready to be planted.
Keeping this in view, how do you transplant succulent cuttings?
Simply snip off tops or ends of mature stems; the bare stems left on original plants will quickly sprout new stems. Allow the cut ends to dry and heal over a few days. When planting succulent cuttings, either wait a few days to insert into new soil or before watering those you plant immediately.
In this regard, how long do succulent cuttings take to root?
What is the fastest way to root succulents?
Place your clippings and leaves, cut ends up, on a dish filled with fast-draining soil facing indirect sunlight. Leave for about three days or until the ends callus over. Once that happens, use a spray bottle to squirt everything five to six times until the soil is moist but not soaked.
What to do after propagating succulents?
Put the leaves on a paper towel until the cut ends dry out so that they will not rot when planted. After a couple of days letting the leaves dry on the paper towel, transfer them to lay on top of some succulent or cactus potting soil.
Do succulent cuttings need to dry out before planting?
Unlike mature succulents, cuttings will need regular moisture until they can grow roots. Water frequently enough to keep the soil from drying out, but not so often that you see standing water. Depending on temperature and humidity, actual frequency is usually 2-4 times per week.
How long can succulent cuttings survive?
Seedling succulents should not be allowed to sit with exposed roots. However, many mature succulents can have exposed roots for up to a week while you allow the roots to dry out and prepare them for replanting.
Do you water succulent cuttings after planting?
Poke a small hole in the center of the soil and gently place the stem of the succulent cutting in the hole, firming up the dirt around it. Ensure that the lowest leaf of the cutting is sitting slightly above the soil to avoid rot. Do not water the cutting after planting.
When should I put succulent leaves in soil?
When to plant propagated succulents
Once you start to see roots, cover them with soil. This way they will stay cool and have access to water. Keep watering so that the soil stays damp. You don’t need to do anything with the mother leaf.

How do you regrow succulent stems?
I most often propagate succulents by stem cuttings. Make sure your pruners are clean and sharp. Simply cut the stems to the length you want, peel the bottom 1/3 of the leaves off and then let those stems heal off (this is where the cut end of the stem callus over) for 2 weeks to 4 months before planting.
