The Stonecrop should be used for rock gardens, The development of the The Stonecrop is This plant in the winter assumes a yellowgreen colouring; it is small in size and can reach 8 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Stonecrop in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Stonecrop plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.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 only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 glasses of water every 4-5 weeks . 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 .
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.
These succulent plants need to be located in an accentuated and drained substratum. We suggest repotting every 2-3 years.
Seeing the quite contained development it’s possible to grow these plants in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
