Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Because ice plants are succulents, they do not tolerate wet soil, though they do well in poor soils. In fact, wet soil, especially during the winter months, is likely to kill the plants. In areas where the soil stays consistently dry, this plant can become invasive, so it is best to take this into consideration when planting it. Ice plants prefer full sun but can tolerate some light shade in the garden.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Mid Autumn

The ice plant can be propagated by division, cuttings or seeds. If propagating by division, it is best to divide the plants in the spring. Cuttings can be taken anytime in the spring, summer or autumn. When grown by seeds, scatter the seeds on the surface of the soil and do not cover them, as they need light to germinate.
