How do you breed succulents?
Last Updated: 9th April, 2020
- Pull a flower off of the pollen donor plant as soon as the anther is laden with pollen.
- Remove the petals from the flower to expose the pollen-covered anther on top of the long, slender stigma.
- Rub the anther's pollen on the receptor flower's stigma as soon as it becomes sticky.

Secondly, are Succulents asexual? Known for their fleshy, water-filled leaves, succulents are drought-tolerant. Succulents are easily propagated via asexual, or vegetative, propagation. These propagation techniques use a piece of an existing plant (called the mother plant) to grow new daughter plants.
Then, how do succulents reproduce in nature?
Some succulents make your propagation work easier by forming new plants mostly on their own. Some leaf succulents develop roots on their stems while still attached to the mother plant, and sometimes leaves fall off succulents and root by themselves. Still others develop new rooted plantlets at their bases.
Can I plant a succulent leaf?
Propagate succulents from leaves Put the leaves on a paper towel until the cut ends dry out so that they will not rot when planted. After a couple of days letting the leaves dry on the paper towel, transfer them to lay on top of some succulent or cactus potting soil.
