Legolas jade & Variegated Gollum jade, leaf propagation

Hi all,

It is very easy to propagate Crassula ovata 'Legolas' and Crassula 'Gollum Variegata' from cutting but I find hard to propagate them from leaf cutting.

I have tried to propagate more than 60 leaves of Legolas. None of them gave me a variegated plant. The plants obtained were either albino or green. I have also tried to propagate 50 leaves of variegated Gollum and I just obtained one variegated plant.

Ben, Martin, Josh, Mike, Woodnative, Oksana... I would appreciate if I you could share your experience. Did you try the leaf cutting propagation ? Don't you think that variegated Gollum is much more fragile than Legolas ? I've lost it several times and the small cuttings die fast too.

Thank you very much !

The plants behind are rooted cuttings of Legolas.
