    I'd like to help regarding watering but I've never grown plants in that way. I tend to use very gritty compost and drainage in the pots.I can only suggest you keep them on the dry side, as that will be preferable to too wet. Obviously more water in summer, and very little if any in winter.

    You can just take off a stem and allow the stem to dry for a few days and the cut to callous over. Then just bury it an inch into a well drained cactus compost, it should root easily if kept warm on a windowsill. Equally, just a leaf will root and create a new plant, but its a longer process.

    Help - overwatered all my newly potted succulents

    If the wet continues for more than a few days I'd consider bringing them under cover, but for a while they will be okay.
