AttributesType: Houseplant, Succulent
Height: 2in - 3in
Spread: 6in - 8in per individual rosette, but will fill any container or area with pups

Pet Safe: Non Toxic
CareGeneral Maintenance: Repot your succulents only when they outgrow their pot into a pot that is 1 size larger. Repot early in the growing season for best chance of success. Propogate via stem cuttings or leaf cuttings. Allow the cuttings to callous for at least 24 hours prior to replanting
Temperature: These plants are very tolerant of colder climates and can withstand -40 degrees for short amounts of time. They can withstand temperatures as high as 28 degrees Celsius perfectly fine
Light: These plants require a lot of light to grow properly. A minimum of 6 hours of full sun in a day will have them happy, or as much bright direct sunlight as possible. They can tolerate direct sunlight for long periods of time, though take care to watch for burning of the leaves. If this occurs, take out of direct sunlight into indirect sunlight
Watering: Succulents of any variety have thick, water-retaining leaves so they rarely need watering. These plants have roots that are very sensitive to rotting, so it is best to allow at minimum the top 2 inches of soil to dry between watering. Ideally 50% of the soil should be dry before watering any succulents
Soil: These plants enjoy most potting soil mixes so long as they have excellent drainage. Mixing in Perlite/Vermiculite or other gritty, drainage improving inorganic materials is a great way to improve your soil quality
Fertilizer: Succulents rarely need fertilization, but will benefit from feedings once every year during the start of the growing season to refresh the nutrients in their soil
