Description:

Also called “Kebab bush”, its name “Rupestris” derives from Latin and means “rocky” or “found on rocks”, in fact, in nature it grows among the rocks of the Orange River in the Fish River valley. It is a beautiful shrubby succulent plant, with fleshy, compact leaves that form small rosettes. Like many other plants of its kind, when exposed to the sun and in dry cold conditions, its light green color changes to intense yellow with reddish edges. In the period from winter to spring you can admire its clusters of small starry flowers in white and pink colors. This succulent is perfect for adding color to your rock gardens.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 7 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

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 well draining and porous 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.
