How to Propagate Sedum Adolphii 'Golden Glow'

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.

Cuttings:

Same thing as for leaf propagation, but this time you will need trimmers to get a clean cut of the cuttings. Cut off the cutting at an angle with trimmers, and make sure there’s enough room to plant the cuttings. Let the cutting form a callus by waiting 2-4 days. After a callus forms then go ahead and plant the cutting in well-drained succulent soil.
