Take Cuttings - It's easy to take cuttings of established succulents growing in your garden. With small pruning snips, cut stem sections 1-2 inches long. Remove lower leaves. (Roots will sprout from these leaf nodes.) Let cuttings dry on a tray for a few days before you plant them. This curing process causes cut ends to callus (form a thin layer of cells). "It's OK if the cuttings shrivel up a little bit." I'm going to have to stop myself from walking around the neighborhood with clippers.
