  • Rooting Hormone

    Hi y'all,

    I am trying to propagate succulent leaves for the first time and have a question regarding rooting hormone. I have the leaves off of the plant and dried them out for a few days in an attempt to callus the ends over but they're looking kind of sad. Is it too late for me to try rooting hormone? I realize that they obviously aren't going to have grown roots by now (it's been about a week since I started the propagation process) but I would like to give rooting hormone a shot it if it's not too late in the process to use it.

    Thanks!

      Pei I don't suggest to use rooting hormone on succulents tbh. Succulents are honestly relatively easy to propagate. However it does not always mean 100% success rate. It’s always best to take multiple cuttings at the time of propagation, and most importantly be patient.

      if you let it callus over and it's not looking the great meaning it won't work and rooting hormone won't help too.

      in general with succulent propagation, you want to put it in a bright indirect lit environment, which is essential for fast root development and overall appearance of new plant. Hope this helps :)
