Aeonium Black Giant

One of the coolest to add to annual planters and outdoor containers.

desert plant succulent

One of the coolest to add to annual planters and outdoor containers. These ornamental succulents have thin, but waxy leaves arranged in a rosette usually borne on the end of a thin stem. Most Aeoniums are native to the Canary Islands, off the coast of Spain, so they are moderately drought and heat tolerant. Depending on the variety, some may burn in full sun.

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.
