Feed Stonecrop
In this period of the year, letís remember to enrich the soil of our succulent plants, using, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer; fertilizers for succulent plants must be poor in nitrogen to avoid them from producing too much vegetation which would be easily attacked by fungal diseases.

Care Stonecrop
These plants are used in rock gardens. Stonecrop Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a red colouring; the adult specimens are small in size and reach 5 cm high. The Stonecrop has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much.

Irrigation StonecropTenere asciutto
Letís remember that the succulent plants can withhold water inside their materials, therefore they need to be watered only when the weather is hot. We suggest watering the The Stonecrop every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water.

Adversity Stonecrop
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Stonecrop
Grow in a soft and sandy, very well drained soil.
