Portulacaria afra ‘Variegata’ (Rainbow Bush)

Posted by on July 7th 2017 in

Portulacaria afra variegata succulent

This shrubby succulent has striking reddish-brown stems and light green leaves with white variegation. It is also known as Elephant Bush.

Light
Most varieties of succulents need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight.

Planting
Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant.

Soil
Succulents need good draining soil. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole.

Watering
After planting, water in well and allow the soil to dry between waterings. Water when soil is dry and the sun is shining. Succulents don’t like to have wet feet.

Fertilizer
Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.
