Propagate a succulent within one minute


How do you propagate a Succulent?

The origin of succulents lies in the Amazon region. In nature the plants grow in warm but shady places. The nice thing is that the plant requires little maintenance, both in nature and as a houseplant. Grease plants need little water, and they don’t have a problem with the location. Just like Sansevierias, Euphorbias and Cacti.

The same applies to the cutting of fat plants. Not difficult, but the process is very slow. You don’t have to look at it every day, just like taking care of it. Saves you time again!

Propagating a Succulent in 4 steps

1. Cleaning the knife

A succulent plant can be cut without the use of a knife or scissors. Although you may still need some help.

So just to be sure, clean a knife well. You can use disinfectant or pure alcohol.

2. Loosen and cut leaf

The cutting of a succulent plant can be done by carefully unscrewing a leaf. Do not pull on the leaf while twisting. Make sure that the leaf is unscrewed from the stem.

Doesn’t it quite work with the twisting? Then cut off the leaf from the trunk.

3. Have patience

Then take the flowerpot with fresh soil. You can put the cuttings of the Vetplant in a pattern on the soil. It is important not to water them!

What you can do regularly is spraying the cuttings with a plant sprayer.

4. More cuttings

After about 6 weeks, in addition to roots, small leaves will have grown on the cuttings. From this moment on you can also water the cuttings.

The small leaves on the cuttings can also be watered after a while.
