Ice plant is easy to propagate.

Just take cuttings about 4" long, with some leaves on each cutting. Make a clean cut about 1/4" from the bottom node, dip into some hormone powder (or not, and stick into some medium of your choice.

I have had ice plant root just laying on the ground.

Good Luck!

Here's how easily they root....I did 24 cuttings (mine were shorter than 4") in a 50/50 (perlite and peat) mix out on the back patio, which sits in the full sunlight most of the day. 7 days later, they were firmly rooted!

No rooting hormone, no cover, no misting....just once a day watering.
