Enjoy a bold burst of color with the lovely and adaptable Variegated Kiwi Succulent. This succulent grows in a rosette formation with broad leaves that come to a point. New foliage is yellow and gradually transitions into a dark green with sunlight. The leaves also feature a dark pinkish-red along the margins. The edges of the Aeonium percarneum have a toothed appearance that adds texture and visual interest. The Variegated Kiwi Succulent likes cooler temperatures and more water than other members of the succulent family.
Best Locations For Growing Variegated Kiwi Succulent
Most places in the home are good for the Variegated Kiwi Succulent. This cultivar does not have the same care needs as most succulents, so it can comfortably live in an area with average temperatures and humidity. The Variegated Kiwi Succulent does not need the arid conditions most succulents require, so you can place this beauty in areas most succulents cannot normally call home, like kitchens or tables and shelves in partial shade.
Variegated Kiwi Succulent Sunlight Requirements
This plant prefers partial shade, so keep it away from bright sunlight, but even a few feet back from a sunny window is a good spot. Consistent medium light will promote the variegation in the foliage and allow this stunner to put on a show.
Variegated Kiwi Succulent Care
The Variegated Kiwi Succulent prefers mild conditions, and in nature, this plant goes dormant during the summer and actively grows during the winter. Houseplants do not always keep to this schedule, and the plant may continue to grow in the summer in favorable conditions. This plant also blooms; however, after it blooms, offsets will emerge and the main plant will die.
Watering Variegated Kiwi Succulent
Water the Variegated Kiwi Succulent when the top two inches of the soil are dry. This plant has increased water needs when compared to most succulents, and it does not need to be completely dry before watering. Water less often during the summer if the plant is not actively growing. The Variegated Kiwi Succulent has average humidity needs. This plant can live in areas with low humidity, but it may need water more often.
Feeding Variegated Kiwi Succulent
One thing the Variegated Kiwi Succulent does have in common with other succulents is that it is not a heavy feeder. This plant will be fine without being fed, but you can expect more growth and possibly even flowers if you give it fertilizer. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer monthly when the plant is actively growing.
