The Stonecrop is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.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.
Let’s water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. 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.
