Aeoniums are dramatic evergreen exotics for growing in containers that stores water in their thick leaves.
You can propagate them easily by taking cuttings, which should root in a few weeks. Take cuttings while the plants are still in active growth, to encourage speedy rooting. Select young, slender shoots as propagation material. These will root more easily and have more vigour than older, thicker shoots.
After you’ve followed the steps below, leave your cuttings uncovered and keep them at a temperature of 18-20°C indoors, in a well-lit place such as on a sunny windowsill. Water your cuttings sparingly until they have rooted, taking care not to water directly onto the leaves. Aim to keep the compost barely moist at all times.
