How to Propagate Donkey’s Tail Succulents (Sedum Morganianum)


here we’ve got Sedum Morganianum
commonly called the Donkey’s tail Sedum or Burro Sedum, and we’ve just
repotted this and when we’re repotting it a few small pieces broke off so what
we’re going to do is to take those pieces and show you how to propagate Sedum Morganianum
The whole process is very simple and there are two ways that you
can propagate this plant, one is by using a stem cutting the other by using leaf
cuttings, and if you’re familiar with the Donkey’s tail sedum you’ll know that
these little leaves break off very very easily. With the leaf cuttings all you do
is take the end where it’s broken away from the main plant and put it very
gently down into a cactus and succulent potting mix which is quite free draining
you could just lay them on the top and that will work as well, so that’s it for
the leaf cuttings. For the stem cuttings you’ll see that we’ve removed the
foliage from the lower part of the stem it’s simply a matter of pushing it down
into the potting mix and firming it in once we’ve done this
we’ll miss spray. One of the important things to remember is to leave both the
stem cuttings and the leaf cuttings out of the potting mix for a week or two
weeks until the part with our detached from the plant as callouses over, this
helps prevent the cutting from rotting and it also helps prevent fungal
problems. Once you’ve got them in a little bit of a miss spray and for us
we’re going to put a cover over this so that we get some humidity and that’s
going to help with the plant setting down roots we also like to pour a little
bit of water into the bottom of this propagation tray and that will keep the
humidity up which you’ll be able to leave this for two or three weeks mist
spraying once a week to make sure that the growing medium doesn’t dry out. And
here we have our cutting ground plant and it’s already put on new growth and
it’s and you can see that this little leaf cutting has
already started to grow, so our stem cutting is ready to put up into a larger
pot, we’ll leave our leaf cuttings in for a little bit longer. Subscribe to the

    Great video! I was wondering if you could plant multiple stems into the same pot? I’m trying to get my pot to be as full as possible!

    Looks simple enough. I’m going to try and propagate the one I have. He’s still in his nursery pot and I’m terrified to change him out because they fall of so quickly. So I’m just going to propagate.
