I'm gonna try my hand at rooting cuttings of this just to see if I can. I love mine.

@cyndi..just cut a piece off and place right into the soil. Within a few weeks u should have new growth growing from it.. I've also taken a couple of pieces that were callused over and I've gotten the same results.

Maribel, the congrats go to my sister. She potted it and I just watered it periodically. I am very excited. It took almost a year! @mardel

I've tried to propagate this plant with no success.

@mardel Try again. Let the cuts dry out well for at least a week before planting. Also make sure you plant pieces in the correct direction; top must remain top. They are desert plants. They like dry.

@lovestogarden I'll do that, I'll let the leaves dry longer. Thanks for the great advice!
