While it’s easy to understand that rooting cuttings from patented plants without permission is illegal, that’s just the beginning. It is a violation of a plant patent if you propagate the plant in any asexual way. … Seeds can also be protected by patents.
One may also ask, what succulents can grow from cuttings?
Sedum and Echeveria are two varieties of succulents that can be propagated from both leaves, cuttings, and offsets, while Aeoniums can only be propagated from cuttings. Crassula and Hawothia are two other popular candidates that are perfect for propagating from cuttings and offsets.
Moreover, what are succulent cuttings used for?
Succulent cuttings are used frequently for floral arrangements, wedding bouquets, and even as cake decorations. They have a long life, surviving as cut succulents for weeks without soil which makes them ideal ‘living decor’.
Is it better to propagate succulents in water or soil?

Yes, you can cut off, or prune, a piece of a succulent and replant it. And with the proper living conditions, the pruned piece of succulent will take to its new home and grown into a full-fledged succulent.
