🚨 #PlantCareReminder 🚨🚨 #Aeonium and #FredIvesGraptoveria are going to start going dormant. You’ll see leaf loss and a decline if you don’t adjust the watering schedule during late Spring through Summer. Moving them to a cool, shady spot is ideal. So is backing off of the watering. I give mine a trim by removing declining foliage and their last shower before putting them into hibernation. They won’t get watered as often, even if I keep them indoors. It’s genetics. US Summerin the South is just too harsh for them. You can keep them looking their best by moving them to a shadier spot with lower temperatures since they really do well in cooler climates. Anything above 75Β°F in Texas can πŸ”ͺπŸ”ͺπŸ”ͺπŸ’€ them. Make sure your babies are being acclimated to their new spot before you’re forced to do it as a last ditch effort. Ours are indoors but need to be moved this week. One by one, after trim and bath, they are going to a shelf to hibernate. Wondering when they’ll bounce back? They’ll start waking up mid Autumn. I’ve kept mine indoors in my area since the weather outdoors is far too harsh on them. I’ve also kept them in my garage with no grow light and little water: They were fine and bounced back late Autumn. Don’t think something is wrong with your Aeonium or Fred Ives Grapto. This is just what they do and how they work! #AnthuriumQueen #CarolinesWinterGarden

#MardiGrasAeonium highlight: This beauty does not like bright sunlight nor sweltering heat. It prefers bright morning light and afternoon shade otherwise it could burn. First signs are those of β€œlight stress”: Reddish pigmentation increases and intensifies. It will need a bit more hydration however, it will begin to wilt once it becomes waterlogged and begins to suffocate from taking up too much water. Leaf tips will crisp and leaves will fall off. As beautiful as they are, please remember that you can deprive these plants of a little water in order to achieve a the light stress however it is not recommended that you continuously expose it to bright light, heat, and extremely little water or allow it to go long periods without water during its growing season. This is one of my beauties. She lives in bright shade with only a few hours of morning light. She currently has one rose on top and three on the side. Aeoniums are winter growers in the USA. They should be kept in moderately low humidity otherwise they can go slightly longer periods without water. Be ready to bring them indoors during hotter months when temperatures are above 75Β°F or below 50Β°F otherwise they will go dormant. If they do go dormant, expect to see it either as it shuts down for hibernation unlike other succulents. Extremely low irrigation is required during these months unless you keep them awake in temperatures between 60Β°F-75Β°F. #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #SucculentLove #FitSedum #SanAntonioGregGang #TexasGregGang #CentralTexasGang #PLANTMAFIA #GregGang #Aeonium
