Are you ready for some serious houseplant magic?

You can actually produce NEW succulents from one that you already have!

Propagating a rosette succulent – one of the most common varieties – is easy and totally satisfying. Our friend Mary Ann Rounseville taught us how this winter, and we wanted to pass the knowledge along. If you’ve already mastered your terrarium, this is the perfect weekend project.

See how simple it is to propagate succulents from cuttings in just a few steps, and start growing your houseplant collection this weekend. (Click the image below to view full size.)

Looks like I’m propagating one of my succulents later today once I get home form Home Depot.

What is the best dirt mixture for succulents?

This is great to know because I have been unsuccessful to date — maybe it is the drying step that I was missing.

I hope this works for Burro’s Tail too!
