Gardeners' Notes:

What a lovely little plant! I rescued this poor little creature from Lowes. They were ready to throw it away, what a shame. I took it and discovered it likes a lot more water than many of my other succulents. (I have it in a small terra cotta pot with plenty of drainage, so it dries out very easily) If I let it dry out between watering, its leaves turn yellow and fall off rather quickly. As soon as I started to keep it moderately moist at all times, it not only started to regrow its leaves, but it is starting to branch out, too! Palmbob is right in that it is a very delicate plant, so it needs a place where it won't get bumped into. All in all a wonderful and unique addition to my ever growing succulent collection. Hopefully with some more TLC it will grow as beautiful as I know it can be.

This is a fast growing and branching plant that is an excellent landscaping species for smaller souther California gardens... don't know how cold hardy it is, but no problems with freeze in my yard down to about 25F. Great colors most of the yard- fuzzy, firm (and brittle) leaves of pale to deep green, with brilliant red-pink margins (best in full sun). Seems to bloom multiple times a year.
