Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Tammie-Sedums are one of the easiest plants to propagate. Dragons Blood sedum can easily be divided or propagated from cuttings. You can divide a pot of this plant by removing it from the pot and carefully separate it into smaller clusters. Most sedums, the "Dragons Blood" included, will produce roots on their own along their stems. If you locate a few of these rooted sections you can just cut them off and plant these individual stems. You can also cut off a section of stem, remove the leaves from the lower half of the cutting, and stick it in a pot of well draining potting soil. When taking a cutting try and use the more mature stems instead of the new more lush growth. Keep the soil moist, not wet, and in a few weeks the cutting will have rooted and can be planted in the ground or pot.

Please ask if you have any other questions.

Tammie-Succulents can be a lot of fun to collect and grow. For me the few I have grown take a lot less care than most other plants. As long as they are grown in the correct soil medium, get the correct amount of light and temperatures they are pretty much care free. Growing them indoors can be a little tricky but it can be done. With most all my succulents too much water can be a real killer rotting them out quickly. Most will require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day in order to stay healthy and bloom well. A well draining soil is critical also as soil that holds too much water again will rot them out quickly. Please ask any questions you may have as you collect your different succulents. There will always be a member that has most likely grown the succulent you are asking about. If we don't know the answer we will always be happy to research material and ask experts to help with an answer for you.
