Splitting Succulents

Sometimes gardening is messy and unproductive, but other times it can be the most beautiful things in the world. I am a huge fan of succulents, and I’ve spent some time learning about how to grow them and split them into countless mini plants! I recently re-potted some of the sprouted creations and it was so visually-appealing!


Starting with some leaf cuttings from jade and assorted succulent plants, I left them on a sunny windowsill for a week or so until they sprouted these awesome roots.


Buried the roots in the ground and separated them into individual pots. I’m working on an art project this year where I’ll be incorporating living succulents into all kinds of projects, so I imagine I’ll be using some of these once they’re bigger.


Gardening and repotting plants is hugely rewarding; I love seeing the small roots sprout and grow! Do you propagate succulents?
