I LOVE succulents. They are pretty low maintenance, and come in all sorts of different colors and shapes. Unfortunately my first go around with them turned out very poorly and I ended up killing all of them. I watered them too much and put a few in direct sunlight and fried them. Since then I research the different species I buy to make sure I am taking care of them correctly. If you have ever had any succulents then you know that they tend to drop leaves. You can use these dropped leaves to grow more plants. Lots of websites will tell you that you need to use special rooting hormone. This may speed up the rooting process, but in no way is it necessary.
Collect all your dropped leaves and place on a paper towel. Wait for the end of the leaf or stem to dry and callus. Once it has dried place it on top of succulent soil and spritz with a spray bottle a couple times a week.
The leaf or stem will begin to grow roots and eventually begin to bud. Soon you will have a bunch of new baby succulents! Pinch the stems toward the top of the plant once it grows to encourage it to grow out instead of up. This will help your succulents to grow proportionately. These make fantastic gifts. Put your new babies in a cute tiny pot by themselves or create a variety in one big pot. The possibilities are endless!
