Aeonium 'Kiwi' is very sensitive to wet soil, so choose a potting soil that drains very well and doesn’t retain too much moisture.

🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.


😖 Common Issues

Overwatering is a likely cause of issues with Aeonium 'Kiwi'. These plants are very sensitive to wet soil so if you notice your plant becoming squishy or translucent, overwatering is the likely culprit.

Cut your plant just past where the rot ends and allow it to callus over for a few days before replanting it in fresh, dry soil. Download Greg to make sure your plant never gets overwatered again!

When I first got this guy he was already a little tall and I thought that he was a regular succulent that was stretching and I was killing it. Turns out he’s actually a Kiwi Aeonium and he’s meant to grow around 30-60cm! Great plant for fast growth and easy maintenance! I’ve grown many new ones from him as propagation is tremendously easy!
