Succulent Plants FAQ
How Do You Propagate Succulents?
Some succulents will have baby plants grow beside them. You can divide these by separating them gently, taking the small root system attached then replanting wherever you want them to be. These are called plantlets or offsets and some succulents drop them like seeds which take root where they land.
Dig the plant up gently and separate it by the roots into clumps by gently pulling them apart. These separated parts are ready to plant right away.
Remove some leaves and dry them out in a tray until they form a callus at the cut point. This should take around five days. Place the calloused leaves on some cactus soil and in a few weeks, some little pink roots will grow. Eventually, a baby plant will form and the mother leaf will fall off.
For leggy succulents, chop the whole head off with about an inch of stem attached and wait for the cut to callus. Place this on some cactus soil and in a few weeks it should have started growing some roots and happily continue to grow.
After replanting, leave your new succulent plants for 24 hours before watering.

Can I Use Any Potting Soil For Succulents?
Succulents need really good drainage, so regular potting soil is not a good choice for them. It is far too good at holding onto moisture which could lead to root and leaf rot.
A better selection for a succulent’s potting mix would either be cactus soil, which is made specifically for these types of plants, or potting soil mixed with perlite, sand or another dry medium. This allows for lots of drainage, much like it would have in its natural habitat.
If you are making your own mix, a good ratio is 3 parts potting soil to 2 parts coarse sand to 1 part perlite.
Do Succulent Plants Like Sun Or Shade?
Most succulents absolutely LOVE the sun and need a solid six hours of direct light every day. This makes them perfect for your windowsill and gardens that get lots of sun during the day.
Each variety is different, so make sure you check their individual care instructions and follow them. However, generally speaking, this rule runs true for most.
If you have succulents in pots, you can put them outside in the warmer months, but make sure they come back in before it reaches freezing temperatures, as they are not made for our chilly and damp weather!
Are Succulents Pet-friendly?
Most succulents are pet safe but there are a few varieties that are toxic or even deadly to animals.
Some examples of Pet-Safe Succulents include: Houseleek, Haworthia and Burro’s Tail.
Before buying a new plant, you should always check if it could be toxic to your furry friends. Luckily, most cats and dogs don’t like to nibble on succulents as they don’t smell or taste very good to them. Phone your vet if you think your pet has swallowed part of a toxic plant.
