Leaves:

For leaf propagation, gently just twist and pull the leaf very gently off the stem. It’s very important that you get the full leaf and not let part of the leaf stay on the stem. To make sure you get a very precise cut you can get some trimmers and cut the leaf off. After you cut your leaves off the stem you must make sure you let them sit out for 2-4 days so they can form a callus. After the leaves have formed a callus, go ahead and plant them in well-drained succulent soil.

Offsets:

Same thing as cuttings, make sure that you cut off the offsets at a sharp angle. Then wait 2-4 days for a callus to form, then go ahead and plant the offset in well-drained succulent soil, and water right away.
