Sedum wrightii A. Gray, a west Texas native succulent, is one of a growing number of species known to reproduce by vegetative means. Detached leaves of S. wrightii produce plantlets on the basal portion of the adult leaf in association with callus tissue from what appears to be thinned-walled parenchyma and epidermal cells of the peticle. Shoot primordia appear first, emerging over lateral regions of the callus tissue by about day 5, with the roots emerging several days later.
