We highly recommend you to try out different propagation methods to see which one is the most suitable for you. While the leaf propagation is considered to be the most common method among succulent growers, stem propagation, however, is the fastest propagation method of all. With stem propagation, it usually takes about 4 weeks for roots to sprout, depending on your climate and environment.

3. Can we propagate a string of pearls from its pearl?

Yes, we can but it’s quite difficult since most leaves (pearls) might rot. That’s why we suggest that you should propagate strings of pearls from cuttings.

However, if you still want to explore a new method of propagating from a pearl, give it a try! Growing a whole new String of Pearls plant just from a leaf takes a long time. You need to check the leaf frequently to prevent rotting. To know more about care tips for string of pearls, please visit our blog How to care for String of Pearls
