Care Guide

This is not a fussy plant to care for. It can handle quite a bit of light, but should ideally be kept under 40% shade cloth. It prefers a gritty mix with components like Ibaraki Akadama and Hyuga pumice, as its roots are sensitive to too much water. Water well throughout the year, but make sure the soil dries between waterings.

Growing season

Autumn and winter.

Propagation

Cuttings.

Product FAQS

In our experience, the best time to repot a succulent is in the beginning of the growing season.

A chlorophyll deficiency which results in a lack of green pigment.

A plant with thick, fleshy tissue, designed for storing water over long periods of time.

A mutation in the growth point which results in the plant growing sideways rather than upwards.

If it's only one or two bugs, try to remove them by hand. Alternatively, spray with a pesticide or water with a systemic pesticide. We recommend RoseCare3 or RoseCarePlus, as both these are a combination pesticide and fungicide, which means they prevent insect pests and treat fungal infections.

Succulents do like fertiliser. The general rule of thumb is to fertilise in the growing season. Succulents are quite sensitive, so in our experience halving the recommended dose of general plant fertilizers works well. If it is a fertilizer formulated specifically for succulents and cacti, use the full recommended dose.

Succulents like heavy watering in the growing season, but do need to dry out between watering to avoid root rot.

No, because they are made up of mostly water, they are prone to frostbite.

It is best not to do so. This could stress the plant or burn it. Slowly introduce them by giving them a little bit more exposure each day.

It depends on the amount of sun exposure the window receives. Some succulents will be happy, but the majority will not get enough sunlight to maintain the correct shape. Alternatively, if the window receives too much light, the plant will be burned, as the window will act like a magnifying glass.
