Propagation Turned Brown

by Catherine

I recently tried propagating a succulent and I don't know if something went wrong or not.

The 2/3 callouses on my leaves just turned hard and brown, after I left them for a while in a tray of water to soak, because it had worked initially.

One of my leaves also sprouted a single root, which just disappeared the next day.

Also for fastest successful propagation, should I leave my leaves on top of soil and wait for roots, or water periodically with a spray bottle? Thank you.
