Rosette Leaf Starters - 10 Count

10 Leafs Per Order

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.

I ordered some leaves from Succulent Source, they were big and filled with water. I got at least 25% to propagate. Thanks for my new baby rosettes.

Worth it

I'd never really tried propagating by leaves before, but they were cheap so I figured why not? I've had them laying on a cookie sheet with a little dirt for 20 days, a few shriveled up & a few look the same as the day I got them, but about half of them have roots! I can't stop checking them to see if any new ones have rooted haha


I was super esstatic to receive these leaf cuttings as I want little succulent babies. However, 5 of the leaves I received were damaged at the cutting so they won't be any good for baby making. It's really upsetting that I was given leaves that won't be able to put of anything new. Fortunately of the ones that were cut off properly, they have roots and are growing babies!

Thank you for ordering our rosette leaf cuttings. We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with them. We do ask our customers to please contact us with pictures if there are any issues so we can make it right. Succulent leaves can grow roots no matter where they are cut from. It can take 2-6 weeks for roots to start growing. Hopefully you kept them and are giving them all time to grow their roots.
Wanted to add

Many of the leaves have started to put off roots!!!


I am new to the succulent world. I received my first plant as a gift and have kept it alive for almost a year, so thought I’d try my hand at propagation. I ordered the 10 leave package, and when they arrived, I actually counted 19 leaves! Succulent Source is so generous for adding a few extras! I have (so far) 12 of the 19 leaves growing roots and new baby plants! So exciting!
