    Search succulents on Pinterest. They have a lot of info on them . I have 5 different ones. I just pulled all the leaves off of one of them and waiting for them to callus over and then put in cactus soil and hope the root. I'm new at this succulent thing.

      Dry soil and water once a week is what I have been told. The leaves can root quiet nicely if you do it right. Pin it and you will see. Good Luck!

    Each succulent is a bit different and has a different water & light requirement so be sure to know which one you are dealing with or you will probably not have the results you are wanting. (I have learned the hard way!) Also, know your zone if you are planting outside and/or if you are looking to have them come back the next year! Also, when propagating I have found that most need good draining soil with a good drink daily until they are well established! I love succulents & have about 12 varieties! Enjoy!

  • All great recommendations here! Take into consideration your climate. If you live in the desert, please do your babies a favor and only give them morning or very late afternoon sun, as they will sunburn or shrivel and die. If you are having trouble rooting, try using rooting hormone. Here are a couple short articles that may be helpful.
