Mystery Aeonium: An unlabeled, mystery plant from the wild and whimsical genus Aeonium. These pinwheel rosettes grow atop robust, bare stems. They can show phenomenal colors when grown in bright sun. Aeonium make wonderful focal points in frost-free gardens, but they can also grow indoors on sunny sills.
Please Note: Mystery succulents arrive unlabeled and we cannot take specific requests. Ordering multiples may result in repeats.
Shipping Issues: Aeonium leaves may curl or become bruised during shipping. They will recover with proper light and water and by growing and shedding old leaves. See photo examples:
Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again. Aeonium like less frequent watering during their summer dormancy period.
Aeonium are easy to re-root from stem cuttings. Look to our Succulent Cuttings Guide for tips on succulent propagation.
