Hi! I have acquired this part of the plant (shown in picture), and am wondering what the best method would be to propagate. I have read about a few different methods, but am not sure what would be best.

One method said to cut the stalk about 1/4 inch from the last leaf, then take a few inches of leafs off the bottom, soak in water for 10 min, and then to place the bottom portion directly into the ground. Does this sound like an appropriate method?

Thanks for any help - I REALLY want this to work! Smiling

I will answer on this thread but this is is the same as the plant here so you may have to check both threads for answers:
The thread "sedum in MN id" in Plant ID forum

I agree that the soaking for 10 minutes is a good idea but not the soil part. I would use vermiculite or a mix of vermiculite and sand. Once the cutting has some good healthy roots, go ahead and plant it in the ground or in a pot of appropriate potting medium. Good luck and take photos to show your progress. Thumbs up
