Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Porous and gritty yet sufficiently compact and retentive to hold moisture. Good drainage is essential. Sand, pulverized rock may be added to the soil to give it the proper porosity. Tends to prefer acidic soils. Fresh organic matter should be avoided in the soil.
Light: Full Sun
Water: Avoid watering until soil is thoroughly dry, particularly if drainage is less than perfect. Only enough water to keep the plant from shriveling in winter. Over-watering in winter will cause the soil to sour, and the plants are very susceptible to root rots during this period
Spacing: 12-15 in.
Fertilizing: Use Succulent fertilizer during spring growth (e.g. 3-6-12)
Winterizing: Can be wintered warm or cool, between 50-59. At this temperature range it has to be kept nearly dry and must not be fed.
Maintenance & Pruning: Pruning back flower stems will stimulate increased vegetative growth.
