Can you just repot the little sedums which fall off the big plant and will they take hold?

Hi, Robin! You asked about propagating sedum...
depending on the size of the piece, you might try removing some leaves from the bottom of the stem and placing it in water to root and them planting it. If you need to root it directly in soil, I suggest doing it in a seed starting medium (a soilless mixture). Make sure the medium is damp, place your cutting and cover the pot with a plastic bag for a "greenhouse" effect. Put the pot in a warm location out of direct sunlight and see what happens. You can check for root development by giving the plant a little tug; if you feel resistance, roots have developed and it's time to remove the plastic bag and care for your "new" plant.
Hope this helps!

Hi Robin,

Most sedum cuttings or leaves need to air dry for a couple of days before being put into a rooting medium or potting soil to form a callous so they don't rot. There are hundreds of sedums. Do you know which one you have?

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
