Succulents are pretty popular plants. In fact, they’re pretty AND popular. There’s just something about their rich, green foliage that has great texture and presence. And their easy care makes them a great fit for people who don’t feel like they have the greenest thumbs in the world. Once you start with succulents, you probably will want more. Here’s how to propagate them yourself in a few simple steps.
To divide out some plants to grow elsewhere, use the little “plantlets” or offshoots that have begun to grow next to the main plant. These little ones should be fully formed and rooted, just small. Carefully remove the entire plant (the big one, too), and gently “tease” the roots to separate those of the large plant from the smaller plant.
