Give it a little water during the first year to help it establish. From then on, it can cope with prolonged dry spells. Feeding is not usually needed. Nevertheless, a general-purpose fertilizer can be sparingly applied in the spring.

Cut back flowering stems after they have faded. Propagate this succulent by gently removing the chicks and transplanting them to another space.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant purchase.
