If you’re interested in expanding your succulent collection or sharing Echeveria Etna with friends, there are a few propagation methods you can try:
Echeveria Etna produces offsets, also known as “pups,” from its main stem. These offsets can be separated and propagated as individual plants. Wait until the offsets are at least two centimeters in diameter before separating them from the parent plant.
Another way to propagate Echeveria Etna is through leaf cuttings. Gently pluck a leaf from the stem, making sure not to damage it. Allow the leaf to callous over for a few days, then place it on top of a propagation medium with the u-shaped end facing downward. Keep the leaf in indirect light or use a grow light. Roots should sprout in two to four weeks, followed by new tiny leaves.
