I have seen these tips on the internet, and had not had a chance to try it till now. A friend gave me one African violet leaf after my AV had sadly died because I didn't understand how to keep it happy. Another friend gave me a sage plant leaf.

This was all around October or November and the images show how far along they are.

Two things:

1) It seems to help the propagation process to keep them in a bell jar or terrarium situation, which keeps the humidity up.

2) African violets dislike water on their leaves so once a week I soak the bottom in a water/fertilizer mix.

3) Succulents require no watering or steaming in any way, if you keep it inside the bell jar situation. You just leave it in the dirt and let it do its thing.

After this growth stage, I need to figure out what else to do!

Just snap a leaf off with a little of the stem if possible. Bury it a little past the stem (up onto the bottom of the leaf) in a nice potting soil, water the soil, and keep the soil moist.

After a while, you will see a tiny new leaf growing from the base of the old leaf. When it gets large enough, you can transplant it in a larger pot. This is a great way to start new plants if leaves happen to break off.
