You will get a mix of at least 5 different types, often more!
Place in the dry shade and wait a few weeks and they’ll begin to root. Some may begin showing root hairs sooner than others, lots of factors involved. You can also lay on top of soil and the same thing will happen. You can also insert partially into soil, make sure you insert the end that was broken away from the main plant, not upside down.
Succulent cuttings are also an option, but these leaf starters are a lot cheaper for those with a little patience! When laying on top of or into soil, place correct end in the soil(end that came off of mother plant) I also don't water for the first 2 weeks, keep in shade, no full sun until rooted and growing and then introduce slowly.
** Do not be alarmed if they do not look perfect! upon arrival! They are just leaves and will likely shrivel up completely after rooting and or forming a new tiny rosette! The new growth is the important part. Consider them a seed, not the plant that comes from the seed! If they have a crack, or rough edge, or wilted, or.... don't despair!!! You are not buying a perfect leaf! If a leaf turns black and soggy/mushy, throw it away. Some customers have 100% success, some customers fail miserably, too much sun, moisture, humidity??? We cannot guarantee these guys, they are a cheap opportunity to try propagating succulents at the most basic level. Hope this makes sense!
We also try to always add a few extras w every order.
**DIY accessories like soil, pots etc.
People Love Our Succulent Rosette Leaf Starters! Have a Read:
Received quite a few more leaves than ordered, which was a nice surprise! Wide variety in the ones I got, including what I'm pretty sure is a neon breaker leaf 😍 (no signs of growth there yet though) At 3 weeks in I think I've got 4 or 5 starting to root out of my recieved 27, which I'm quite happy with, given I've heard it can take much longer. I would need to count the remaining ones to know the exact number that have shriveled, but not an amount I'm concerned by at this point.
One leaf has started growing a new rosette, which I've been enjoying the heck out of watching. I hope another one starts putting out a rosette soon. 🥰
Overall this has been a very enjoyable $4 to have spent, and I feel like whatever my success rate ends up being, I've learned enough from this to be feel much more prepared for future propagation adventures. 😊
I was nervous that USPS was going to take longer than expected, but that wasn't the case! This is my first-time trying out air propagation on succulent leaves and so far, it is going great. About two weeks have passed and the bigger leaves are definitely propagating at a faster rate than the smaller ones. I am so excited to see how many of these leaves will propagate and become beautiful tiny succulents!
This is my first time trying cuttings like this, and I’m not sure I’m doing it right, but it’s through no fault of SS. Two weeks in and about half have shriveled up, but I’m still hopeful that I’ll get some plants from this. Picture is day of arrival.
I’ve had my cuttings for 2-3 weeks now and so already have some of them growing little roots! They got here very quick and were packaged nicely! When I’m ready to grow some more I will definitely be coming back and buying more!
