Step Four: After the leaf has dried out, you will notice the end will start to ‘callous’. For most succulent varieties, this will look like a small pink bulb has formed where the leaf was detached. Some succulent varieties will simply have gone hard and white at the end. This is the time to place your leaves in succulent soil, and begin misting with water every two to three days.
In about seven days, you will not that roots have started to form on your leaves, and a few weeks after that you will notice small succulents growing from the tip. Do not panic if this process takes a little longer than the specified time, as it depends on the conditions and health of the original plant.
The rest of the book has information on the correct dirt for your succulents, what you can plant them in and other methods of propagation, including how to safely remove your ‘baby’ plants.
