You'll Love How Cute The Leaves Are On Sedum Rubrotinctum "pork And Beans"!


If you’re looking for an adorable little succulent to add to your collection, look no further than sedum. Rubert ingdo’m. This adorable plant has chubby little leaves that in the traditional variety, they can get bright red and a little bit orange. Eon, the tips and then in the Aurora variety. You can see the leaves are a little bit more pale and then more of a pinkish purple on the edge and the leaves are so much fun. One thing that is tricky about these, though, is as you’re moving them or trying to combine them with other succulents and arrangements, the leaves tend to fall off really easily. Sometimes just a slight bump will send ten or twelve leaves flying. So the great thing about those leaves, though, is that when they do fall off, you can place them right back on top of the soil and within a few days of laying on dry soil and then a little bit of water, they will start to produce baby plants of their own. And there is nothing cuter than little baby. Sedum Ruber tanked them growing from those leaves. So if you are looking to attempt propagating succulent from leaves, I would highly recommend starting with sedum Rubert ingdom because it is incredibly easy to propagate that way. You can also propagate it by cutting off some of the stems, letting it dry out for a day and then sticking it in some dry soil and watering regularly within a couple weeks, it should grow roots and start growing taller. These will grow to be about twelve inches in height, so it’s not going to be a gigantic plant, but it is still a decent size. However, it also stays nice and small and compact in a container arrangement. It will need full. Sun in order to maintain a compact shape. You’ll notice that this one here is really elongated. I’ve had it in the studio just under these video lights as grow lights for about a week, and you can see that it’s already starting to stretch out this. Aurora is not quite as stretched out, but it can be even more compact than this, so it’s not a succulent that I would recommend for growing indoors unless you have it under a really bright grow light. You’ll also find, though that if it is indoors, or if it’s in shade, it’s not going to get that nice orangie red tinge along the edge. It’ll stay a really deep green color. Now it can tolerate temperatures down to about 20 degrees Fahrenheit, so it’s rated for a zone 9 it can do pretty well outdoors in a freezing climate as long as the freezing doesn’t last for more than a couple weeks and as long as the temperatures don’t get much below freezing, so if you have temperatures that are 20 degrees for a couple days in a row, you’ll want to cover these with frost cloth or bring them inside until it warms up a little bit. Otherwise, you will see some damage and frostbite as I like to call it on the leaves, so keep an eye out for that. These can be toxic to humans and animals. So you’ll want to make sure that you keep them out of reach of any of your pets so that they don’t get sick. The sedum rubber tinta is most actively growing in spring and fall. It’s technically considered a winter grower, so it likes those cooler temperatures to really grow and put off new offshoots and even for propagation, you’ll generally want to propagate them in this spring, although you can do it year-round now something that happens a lot with sedum routine from is they tend to put off what we call aerial roots, so its little roots that grow right along the stem of the plant. Sometimes the stems can get really hard and Woody and that’s pretty normal as the plant ages, and if you live in a humid environment, then you’re more likely to see those aerial roots, usually what that means is there’s water in the air and the succulent is trying to reach for that water, so it’ll put off these aerial roots to try and get more now doesn’t necessarily mean that your succulent is under watered, but just keep in mind that it generally indicates a humid environment and your succulent is just trying to get more water to keep it alive and growing in general, though sedum root inti’m just loves to follow the soak and Raymond, So you soak the soil with water and let it dry out completely. Generally, that can take several days sometimes a week or more, depending on you live again. Humidity is gonna play a big role in that For more information on the Sokka and Raymond. Be sure to watch our watering video, but for sure, you’ll want your sedum rooting time in a dry, well draining soil. You don’t want it to be wet or soggy for very long. And once the soil is drained out completely. Go ahead and water it again. So this little plant is so fun. Pork and beans or jelly beans is sometimes called. It just has a really different look than your typical rosette succulent, and it’ll make a really great addition to your collection. I would love to know what your experience has been growing sedum.
