I always hesitate to assure a gardener that a particular plant is easy to grow or propagate because invariably someone will have difficulty with the process and consequently determine that he or she has a black thumb. Which is the last thing I want to result from my encouragement.
I prefer to use the phrase “thrives on neglect” in the hopes that the person will take heart and actually attempt to grow the plant or try the technique.
Succulents started from cuttings are a great example. And now through summer and fall is their time.
I’ve spent the last week trimming leggy succulent stems and pulling up baby offshoots to pot up in containers for sharing with gardening friends.
Here’s the process that I hope you’ll pursue.

Great info! I'm impressed that you don't worry about adding perlite or other drainage aids but still have such great plants. I think I have to be better at the "neglect" aspect, lol. Thanks for the tips (and for the link to the begonia propagation post).
