How do you propagate succulents without roots?
- Step 1) Carefully snap off a leaf from where it’s attached to the main stem.
- Step 2) Leave the cutting or leaf in a well-lit spot for 2-3 days until a callus forms over the end.
- Step 3) Once formed you can place straight into soil (callus first) or lie flat on soil and watch it grow.
What if my succulent has no roots?
If you see little roots growing out of the stems of your succulent, do not panic! It is a sign that your plant is growing healthy. Not to mention, these tiny roots are called aerial roots. However, when you see aerial roots popping out of your green, keep in mind that you will need to care for them differently.
How do you grow succulents from cuttings?

- Water and Feed.
