Vase: 8.5 cm.

Family: Crassulaceae

Origin: South Africa



Also called "Kebab bush", its name "Rupestris" comes from Latin and means "rocky or found in the rocks", in fact in nature it grows among the rocks of the Orange River in the Fish River valley. It is a beautiful bushy, succulent plant with fleshy, compact leaves that form small rosettes. Like many other plants of this type, when exposed to the sun and dry cold, its light green color changes to an intense yellow with reddish edges. From winter to spring, you can admire its bunches of small starry flowers in white and pink. This succulent is perfect for adding color to rock gardens.


Light: It needs a lot of light during all seasons, but avoiding direct sunlight, especially during the hottest hours of the day.



Temperature: It is preferable to keep it in mild temperatures and above all never below 7°C, so it is recommended to place it in sheltered places during the winter.



Watering: Moderately, only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough once a week in spring and summer, a reduction every two months in autumn and completely discontinued in winter.



Substrate: Using a strongly draining and porous soil is ideal, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate. ideally useSiro Cato.



Fertilizing: They do not need frequent fertilization, it will be enough to dilute the fertilizer in the irrigation water once or twice a year. PreferablySiro Liquid Fertilizer Cato.
