When succulents such as some echeverias and Graptopetalum outgrow their pots or creep beyond allotted space in beds and borders, you can prune them and use the cuttings to start new plants.

Young plants make great hostess and holiday gifts.

Step 1

Snap a rosette from the mother plant, leaving a couple inches of stem attached.

Set the cutting aside in a dry, protected place, out of direct sun, until the cut end dries and seals (three days to a week).
