1.Plant the cutting. Stems cuttings can be planted as usual, burying the stem until the lowest leaves are just above the soil, but not touching it. Buried leaves are more likely to rot, so if you have a leaf cutting, try just touching the cut end to the soil surface, propping the leaf up with pebbles.

2.Place the plant in a warm, airy location. Young succulents may not have the water supply to withstand direct sunlight, unlike adult plants. They do best in
indirect sunlight, temperatures of around 68ºF (20ºC), and in locations with good airflow.

3. Keep the soil slightly moist. Young succulent cuttings need a regular supply of water in order to stay alive and develop roots. However, succulents are
adapted to dry climates and will usually rot if kept in soaking conditions. Try using a spray bottle or small pitcher to add water to the top of the soil as soon it dries out, or about every week or two in cold weather, since the roots have not yet developed.

4.Reduce watering as the plant develops. A stem cutting may have a sufficient root system after four weeks (depending on your climate), at which point
you may water as infrequently as once a month. Leaf cuttings will develop more slowly, but can also be tracked by eye as small leaves and roots emerge from the cut end. Gradually reduce watering frequency once the roots enter the soil, which may take six weeks or longer. It is MUCH more likely that a cutting will be killed by over watering than under watering.

5.Use fertilizer cautiously. Succulents are slow-growing plants, and are not adapted to growing in high-nutrient soil.Use a balanced fertilizer (for instance, 10-10-10) only during the growing season, and only once the young plant is at least four weeks old, with established roots. Consider using the fertilizer at ½ or ¼ the recommended dose, to prevent the plant becoming overly tall and "leggy" with little foliage, or burning its root system.
