CareGeneral Maintenance: These plants are very easy to take care of, repot once every 1-2 years in a pot one size larger until they have reached maximum size. Then repot every 2-3 years to refresh the soil. Propagation by splitting pups from the mature plant is the easiet.
Temperature: Keeping succulents around regular household temperatures will allow these plants to thrive. They are hardy to cold temperatures as low as 14 degrees Celsius, and can tolerate short amounts of time between 5-14 degrees
Light: These plants love full sun, and can barely get enough of it. Provide bright light for at least 6 hours a day but they will thrive with a minimum of 8 hours. Too little light and these plants will stretch and reach and their leaves will be spaced far apart
Watering: These succulents hold a lot of moisture in their waxy leaves. As such they rarely need watering, water when the top 50% of soil is dry
Soil: A succulent mix that provides good aeration and well-draining is best for these succulents. Mixing in Perlite or other gritty materials so the soil mixture is 1:1 will allow for best growth
Fertilizer: These plants do not need much feeding, fertilize at half strength once every 2-3 months during the growing season (April - August)
