How To Propagate From Leaves
My FAVORITE thing about succulents is how freakin' resilient they are. If you have an over-watered or stretched succulent, chances are you still have some good leaves that you can try to propagate AKA grow new baby succulents!
Wiggle while you work it - Be gentle when trying to pop your leaves off. We're not popping collars here, bro. We're gently wiggling and twisting to try to avoid tearing the leaf. If you can get a nice clean break, just lay that leaf on some dirt for a few days to let it callous over. Check out our full guide to propagating below!
