Caring for
Succulent Cuttings

  1. If you have received a Kit-EaseTM Rooting Kit with your order, empty the gravel into the supplied dish and arrange the plants. (Horizontally or vertically does not matter for unrooted cuttings). If you are rooting in pots, use fast draining cactus/succulent
    soil as your rooting medium. You can root the cuttings individually, or together as we do, in
    an 8" pot.
  2. Place your arrangement indoors, or in a sheltered spot. Let them adjust overnight.
  3. The next day, mist the leaves lightly with a gentle aerosol sprayer. Do NOT water the plants. Cuttings can rot if you water them before they root. Also, our eco-friendly rooting dishes are made from pressed palm leaves which will
    warp if watered directly.

4. Mist every day or two, and if leaves pucker. In 2 weeks, some varieties may have already started to form roots. Within a month, most plants should be showing roots and will need soil for nourishment. All should now be transplanted to their
permanent home.

5. If your area is frost free, plant the succulents outside. Otherwise, plant indoors on a sunny windowsill. Always use fast-draining cactus/succulent soil for these plants.

6. Once planted, water again ONLY when the soil has completely dried out (about an inch down). Do not over water—it's the main cause of succulent death.

Cuttings are yet-to-be-rooted plants. They have been hydrated, clipped to order, and carefully packed. Succulents best maintain their colors in indirect sunlight. Without light, the plants may lose color; without water, they may pucker—this is just temporary. The time in transit allowed the cut ends to callus (form a “skin”). They are now ready for rooting.

 

“Extra” leaves in the package?
Do not toss them! They, too, may root and become bonus plants!
