This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. The Century plant is a succulent plant. Fertilize Century plant
During the beautiful season it’s good to enrich the soil of our succulent plants; we advise using a fertilizer rich in potassium and phosphorous, but poor in nitrogen, because this chemical element doesn’t help the development of succulent plants, making them too soft and full of water. Light Century plantSole pieno
We suggest growing the The Century plant in a place where it's sheltered by frost; when all dangers of late freezings are gone we can locate them outdoors. Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light.A great part of succulent plants can endure low temperatures, even below 5°C, but if we’re growing them in a harsh climate we must avoid watering.

We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 glasses of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 4-5 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. Succulent plants can also endure long periods of time without watering; usually as the climate gets colder they need less water, while during the summer months they should be watered abundantly . Pests Century plant
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Mold Century plant
These succulent plants need to be located in an accentuated and drained substratum. We suggest repotting every 2-3 years.
