Trying to propagate this from a steam cutting. I hope it doesn’t die like my tulips did.

How to make succulent babies!
Step 1: Pick leaves Gently twist the leaf near the base, it should snap off the plant cleanly. Good cuttings will be slightly rounded at the ends, and have no ‘open’ wound:
Tumblr media
Bad cuttings will not grow, you need to make sure the whole leaf comes off in one go. Bad leaves are jagged, torn, or cut:
Tumblr media
Step 2: Lay all cuttings inside on a piece of cloth. I usually put a piece of old scrap material down on my desk and lie all the leaves out in rows. I try not to pile up the leaves, as this tends to promote rot. Do not water at all. AKA no misting the leaves, no watering the leaves, nothing. Everything the baby succulent needs to grow is stored in the mother leaf, watering may rot the leaf before the new plant is big enough to survive on its own! Make sure the leaves aren’t in direct sun, as they will wither before they form new plants. Filtered light from a window is strong enough!
Tumblr media
Step 3: Waiting After about 4 weeks you will start to see the first signs of life. The leaf may send out roots first, it may start to grow with no roots. Both are okay! 
Tumblr media
Step 4: Planting (Start watering once a week at this stage) After 6-8 weeks the baby succulents will be big enough to plant outside! I do this by placing the leaves on top of loose, sandy soil that has not been compacted. I do not bother burying the leaves, as it tends to do more harm than good (you may snap roots/damage new shoots in the process):
Tumblr media
I place all the plants together, they don’t really seem to mind! These is how they look after about 10 weeks:
Tumblr media
When the plants are big enough, the mother leaf will shrivel up and start to die off:
Tumblr media
TADA! You’ve created baby succulents :)

💚 Tumblr!!! You’ve been so kind to me! 💚
I’ve got 10 days left to raise funds for
DRYP - an app that helps you keep plants alive & happy!
This is a little ad I made for the app
out of frustration with the marketing of plants as lifestyle products for rich people with all-white apartments.
YOU TOO CAN HAVE A LOVELY GREEN HOME, I PROMISE! 💚🌱 IT’S NOT JUST FOR GWYNETH PALTROW!
Tumblr media
Here again are the basic functions of the app:

And here again are some of the rewards for backing it!

Please signal boost to help me make this app a reality! Thank you! 🌱🌱🌱
