Gardeners' Notes:

Positive poeciliopsis On Jan 21, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- K. fedtschenkoi grows well in my yard, spreads fast, and blooms profusely. We cut it back several times a year to keep it in check. It is under citrus in deep shade and receives bi-weekly irrigation. It has frozen on the top in the worst freezes (like Jan/Dec. 2013, 24F) but the body of the plant has been unaffected.
Like many succulents, avoid putting trimmings from this into your compost pile. Unless the pile is really hot, the cuttings will root and grow.

I keep some in a pot just to make sure I do not loose the species. I move that pot to the garage for the winter. I have it in the ground and it spreads and gets big there, but the winters sometimes knock it back to the roots. I trim off the dead stuff in the spring and by August it is back to it's former glory. Beautiful flowers

When top inch of soil is dry to the touch. Water generously until water flows out of the bottom of the planter. Do not water again until soil is dry. (Discard extra water in plant saucer to prevent root rot.)
