{GROW} Taming mutant succulents

{GROW} Succulents ©hello harriet 2014

Sometimes succulents can go a bit c~razy. This one used to be a single giant echeveria, until one day it decided to mutate. It now has ten lovely rosettes growing out of the centre trunk - madness! 
If the same thing happens to one of your babes, you have two options; Leave it to do it's own kooky thing, or, propagate!
I *always* have pots that need filling, so I decided to do a bit of beheading so I can grow my little garden {for free!}

Slightly different to when we beheaded the Graptosedum previously, this time we won't be using scissors. Instead, you can simply pop the individual rosettes off by hand, just grab near the base where they meet the parent plant and gently twist. 
As before, remove the bottom few leaves and allow to dry out for a few days before planting. Don't forget you can propagate the lost leaves, and the mummy plant {turned sad looking stump} will keep on producing new growth too if you continue to water like usual.
