Succulent cuttings will gradually begin to look worse before looking better as they no longer have any roots to bring in nutrients and hydrate. As soon as roots begin to form (approx 2-6 weeks), cuttings will begin to fill back with moisture and grow again. Many factors play into this - the thickness/thinness of succulent leaves/petals, temps, heat, when they are placed in soil to name a few. If using cuttings for an event, we recommend they arrive 4-5 days prior for best quality.
