The knife should be dipped in 1 part bleach mixed with 9 parts water. Cloning succulents is most successful at the beginning of the growing season when new growth has not yet formed.

If you are cloning a succulent that is already established, it is best to wait until the plant is fully established before attempting to clone it.

If you clone a plant that has already begun to flower, you will not be able to harvest the flower buds as they will be too small to be harvested.

Everything is explained in that video:

Can you grow succulents from cuttings?

After the stems have been calloused, fill a shallow tray with well-draining cactus/succulent soil and place the cuttings on top. Within a few weeks, roots and tiny plants will begin to grow from the bottom of the tray.

Feed the cacti and succulents with a mixture of 1/2 to 1 cup per 1,000 square feet of soil, depending on the size of your plants and the type of fertilizer you are using. You can also add a small amount of compost to the mix to help the plants grow faster. If you want to add more fertilizer, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons per gallon of water.

Do not over fertilize, as this can lead to root rot and other problems.

Can you cut a succulent stem and plant it?

Simply cut the stems to the length you want, peel the bottom 1/3 of the leaves off, and then let those stems heal off for 2 weeks to 4 months before planting. I plant them directly in the garden or in a pot. If you are planting them in pots, make sure the pots are at least 3/4″ deep and that the soil is well-drained.

If they are planted directly into the ground, you will need to dig a hole about 3-4 inches deep for the roots to grow into. You can use a garden trowel to help you dig the hole, but be careful not to overfill it, as this can cause root rot. Once you have the root ball dug out, it is time to water and fertilize them.

Water them once a week or so, depending on the size of your plants and the amount of water they need. They will take up to a year to get used to being watered, so don’t be surprised if they take a little longer than you would like to see them grow.

How long does it take to clone succulents?

You will be able to see new roots in about four weeks. You can check for new roots by pulling the stem cutting. The plants may look like they are growing out of the ground. Once you have a good idea of where the roots are coming from, the next step is to plant the new plants. You can either plant them directly in the ground or in a potting mix.

If you are planting them in soil, make sure that the pot is at least 6 inches deep and that it is well-drained. It is best to use a soil mix that has a pH of 6.5 or higher. This will help prevent root rot and other problems that can occur with soil that is too acidic or too alkaline. For more information on soil pH, please see our article on pH and Potting Mixes.

How long can succulent cuttings survive?

The survival time for succulents in a box generally is about 10-14 days. Succulents can thrive without water for up to a year.

How long do succulent cuttings take to root?

Don’t water until the roots form. Before you water again, let the soil dry out. Most stems and leaves should root within two to three weeks. Fertilize once or twice a year with a balanced mix of organic and inorganic fertilizers, depending on the type of plant you are growing.

If you’re growing succulents in a greenhouse, you may want to fertilize more often, especially if you have a lot of leaves and stems. You can also add a small amount of compost to your soil to help prevent root rot.

Should I water succulent cuttings?

There is water in this picture. When they can grow roots, they will need regular water. Water frequently enough to keep the soil from drying out, but not so often that you see standing water. Depending on the temperature and humidity, the actual frequencies are usually 2 to 4 times a week.

Fertilize regularly with a balanced fertilizer, such as 10-20% of the plant’s dry weight in the form of a liquid fertilizer. If you are using a soil-based fertilizer, make sure to add enough water to cover the fertilizer by at least 1/2 inch. Do not over fertilize, as this can lead to root rot, which can be fatal to your plant if left untreated.
