Potting up succulent leaf propagations…what happens next

In this 11 week update video we finally get to pot up some succulent leaf propagations! (Demonstrating with Graptopetalum paraguayense) I also show you a couple of neat ways some of my other plants propagate. Read on for care tips!

Care tips: After transferring to dry, fast draining soil you should wait a few days before watering to avoid getting water in any broken roots or damaged stems. Start easing them into bright but indirect light if they were in less light while propagating. Water enough to moisten the top layer of soil every few days while allowing the soil to dry for a day or two between waterings. After a month or so, the roots will be well established and they can go longer without water.
