Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

They can be propagated easily by separating offsets, but also by leaf cuttings, and by seed if they are not hybrids. Succulents need a warm, sunny well-drained position to develop their foliage colour. Most succulents will be grown in containers and pots and they will need good drainage. Add coarse grit to soil-less compost and repot every year in late-spring. Don't worry about damaging the roots when re-potting: these plants tolerate disturbance well.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

Flowers on short stalks (cymes) arise from compact rosettes of succulent fleshy, often brightly coloured leaves. Species are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes
