    This poor little guy was hit by a falling window blind a few weeks ago. Most of the leaves were too destroyed for propagation. It seems like more leaves are continuing to shrivel. There was a pup emerging but the leaves fell off.

    Should I give up and use all the leaves to attempt propagation? What would you do?

    Give it some time, if the roots are still healthy, it will come back.

    I agree with Toni,, these do not grow or recover fast ! Just do not overwater to speed things up,, It will not ! Yes stick the leaves in the sand/soil planting mix !

    I also agree with Toni. Just give it time. Mart's point re being careful not to over water it is a good one too. Resist that urge!
