Beautiful bare root plants and unrooted cuttings for planting, projects, and gifts.
Succulent Cuttings (clippings) are easy to work with and simple to re-grow into rooted plants. Our cuttings arrive cured and ready to use for temporary projects like centerpieces, bouquets, and other décor. You can also grow them into rooted, long-lasting succulents with this Guide to Succulent Propagation. We offer affordable selections of both rosette and stemmed varieties, all of which are easy to use and fun to grow.
PLEASE NOTE: Even with proper diligence, some cuttings may not take root. Following our Propagation Guide will greatly increase the success rate.
How to Plant Succulent Cuttings
Cuttings can be planted in a cactus & succulent mix or regular potting soil, because they like more moisture than rooted succulents. As usual, be sure to use containers with drainage holes on the bottom to prevent standing water and rot. For stemmed varieties, remove lower leaves if necessary to expose the bottom 1" of stem. Plant this end snugly in the soil. Rosette varieties can simply be placed atop the soil.
Propagating & Rooting
Re-root cuttings in a spot with good airflow and bright, indirect sunlight. Water 2-4 times a week to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Actual frequency will vary depending on your conditions.
How Long Does it Take?
It depends, but most succulents take 4-6 weeks to establish roots. A very gentle pull will tell you if your succulent is firmly rooted in the soil. At this point, reduce your watering frequency, move the plant into brighter sun, and transition to Regular Succulent Care.
