Succulent Plants

Transplanting succulents from pot to pot

Zone Walnut Creek, CA | added on June 4, 2017 | Answered

I have recently transplanted several succulents to different pots. I also had one that broke off and I stuck it in a pot to see if it would root. It\'s still living but barely. How do I transplant succulents so they have the best chance and how much water should they have? Thank you.

    Generally when you pot or reports plants you want to give them a lot of water at first. Succulents are opposite, they will rot with too much water and establish roots best when kept on the drier side. When bits of my succulents fall off, I simply stick them in sand and do not water them until they sprout roots
