Care and tips:
🌞 = Prefers bright light but will also tolerate lower light rooms.
💧= Allow soil to completely dry between waters, then water and be sure to drain any excess water left as this will create a root rot problem.
🐶🐱👶= Poisonous if eaten, so keep away from tiny humans and furry creatures. Tortoise safe in small amounts as with all succulents can have a laxative effect!
Easy to propagate, twist a leaf near the base of the plant and leave on sand or well-draining soil then leave until roots and a little "pup" appears. When the original leaf dries up, it can be repotted.
Things to look out for:
Overwatering: succulents, in general, are very prone to overwatering as they store a lot of their water in their leaves, don't allow to sit in water or this can cause root rot which could cause the stems and leaves to have a mushy appearance and die.
Underwatering: If underwatered, the leaves and stems can look empty and shrivelled/dried up.
