How do I grow my own succulents?
Last Updated: 11th May, 2020
- Pull off a leaf from your original succulent. Be really careful when you do this, as you don't want to break the leaf in half.
- Take your separated leaf (or leaves) and lay it (or them) on top of moist soil.
- Wait until you see roots forming.

Similarly, it is asked, is it hard to grow succulents from seeds?
Slow Process Some succulents, like Sempervivum, can take years to bloom and produce seeds. Even after the seeds are collected and sown, they can take anywhere from three weeks to a year to germinate, let alone grow into full-sized succulents.
Subsequently, question is, how long do succulents live? By understanding the basic core needs of succulent plants, you can expect to have them with you for many years. The lifespan will depend on the type of succulent you have. Some greenhouse succulents can live for decades, while others may enjoy a 6 or 8 year lifespan with proper care.
Similarly, do succulents get bigger?
Plants grown out of leaves, baby plants or cuttings tend to grow slower than already established plants. Some succulents also have a tendency to grow large, no matter where they are placed.
Do succulents get big?
Most of the time, their succulents have become much taller and spread out. This is quite a common occurrence, especially when you're growing succulents indoors. While succulents are fairly slow growing, its amazing how quickly they seem to stretch when they aren't getting the light they need.
