Planting and care
- Sedum rubrotinctum can irritate the skin, be careful when touching it. Make sure no pets or children come near or eat the plant.
- The leaves of the plant are delicate and fall off easily-be careful!
- This plant will thrive under bright sunlight outdoors.
- Prepare your planting site by digging out a hole, twice the size of the root area of the plant. If you want to plant it in a container, wash it thoroughly with hot soapy water.
- Prepare the soil for planting by adding 3 parts of sand, 2 parts of potting or garden soil, 1 part charcoal, 2 parts compost, and one-half crushed eggshell.
- Fill the container or the hole with the mixture and start watering lightly. Plant it in the soil just till the root-line.
- If you’re planting a new plant, allow the leaf-cutting to dry out completely before planting. Until you witness signs of new growth, stick the cutting about an inch into the soil and try to keep the soil moist.
- Place your Sedum rubrotinctum plant towards the South or West-facing sunny location.
- Anytime the temperature falls below 40 degrees, bring the plant inside.
- Replace the soil every three to five years.
- To control aphids, spray with insecticidal soap or neem oil when necessary.
