aeonium schwarzkop

Anonymous added on July 29, 2015 | Answered

I recently bought Aeonium schwarzkop. I know I can cut near the base, let it dry and then plant to propagate. What is the success rate in doing this and what happens to the cut end that remains on the original plant? Will it grow another group of leaves?

It is considered quite easy to propagate.
It is likely that the rooted end will continue to grow.
You can propagate with leaf cutting also and this would eliminate cutting the succulent completely off the plant.
