Cremnosedum (Succulents)


It is a hybrid, which means that this species is not present in nature, but cultivated in nurseries by crossing, as the name implies, the two genera Cremnophila and Sedum - two robust crassulaceae. It is a dwarf plant, which does not exceed ten centimeters in height, but develops horizontally instead, covering large spaces with its compact and very nuanced rosettes: the colors range from olive green to pink, taking on wonderful reddish shades when they are exposed to the direct sun. The small leaves have a triangular shape, and their pinkish colors contrast nicely with the bright yellow of the small but rich inflorescences. They are very resistant plants, which need very little water and like any type of soil, and at the same time they are perfect to decorate your rooms with brilliance and liveliness! Here are some tips for its cultivation: It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however avoid direct sunlight. It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it still survives even at temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry. Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter. The best soil is a draining one, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate. They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
