Rootless are succulents. And as the name suggests, a Rootless succulent has no roots. The plant consists solely of a rosette. Moisture is stored in this leafy heart. So, you never give a Rootless too much or too little water!
Rootless succulents are cultivated in nursery pots and grow to the right size. When the plant's rosette is large enough, it is cut loose from the potting soil. A Rootless can be an Echeveria, Aloe, or Gasteria. Other names for Rootless include cutting succulent, cutting plant, cutting Echeveria, and cutting succulent.

Wax Layer / Powder Layer on a Rootless Succulent
Among all the succulents in the world, mainly Echeverias, Pachyphytum, and Dudleyas have a wax layer. The wax layer on an Echeveria plant is a protective powder layer. It serves as the natural sunscreen for the succulent. A succulent can withstand both heat and cold. Each succulent has its unique characteristics and features, leading to variations in the wax layer among species. For instance, Echeveria lilacina is a white Echeveria with a beautiful white wax layer, whereas Echeveria agavoides is a green Echeveria without a wax layer.
Does a Rootless succulent need water?
With a Rootless, you don't need to worry about watering. A Rootless succulent can survive for an extended period without water.
Have you had your plant for a while? Because the Rootless lacks roots, watering it requires a different approach than you might be used to. Place the succulent in a bowl of water for 30 minutes so that the water can be absorbed properly. Then, you can either put the Rootless succulent back in its original location or remove the water from the bowl.
