Baby Sun Rose

.
Baby Sun Rose is a fast-growing, evergreen, mat-forming perennial, growing in flat clumps on the ground from a woody base with four-angled or rounded succulent stems up to 24 inches (60 cm) long.
The bright green leaves are fleshy, flat, heart to oval shaped and up to 1.20 inches (3 cm) long.
The flowers are bright pink to purplish and the fruits are a capsule up to 0.4 inch (1 cm) long.


Grow & Care
••••••••••••••••

Water it only when the soil is completely dry, and then provide enough to drench the soil to a depth of about 6 inches (15 cm).
To check for dryness, poke your finger into the soil.
Never water if the soil feels damp or cool, as Aptenia, like all succulents, is prone to rot in soggy, waterlogged soil.
Water it lightly during the winter if the leaves begin to look shriveled. Provide only enough water to moisten the soil as the plant deteriorates quickly in cool, damp soil.
Withhold fertilizer, which isn’t needed and often results in a weak, floppy plant.
Trim the plant as needed throughout the growing season, using pruners or garden shears to keep the plant tidy. Pot the plant and bring it indoors for the winter when nighttime temperatures drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius)
