About Elf Orpine
Plants in the Sedum genus are super diverse, and are native to regions all over the world. Horticulturalists have bred them to create even more variietes that come in all manner of shapes and colors! Their succulent leaves help store water, and they are incredibly easy to propagate. Just gently pop off one of the leaves and with water and sunlight it will grow into a whole new plant. 🪴

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
