List of files and visuals associated with this text.


The plants in this group are succulents. They grow best in high light but some tolerate lower light intensity. A well-drained soil is essential. Keep the soil moist when the plants are growing but drier during rest periods. Do not let temperatures drop below 45 degrees. If repotting is necessary do it as new growth commences. Allow the soil to become quite dry after repotting.

Propagation is by stem cuttings taken in spring or summer. Use the previous season's growth and allow the cuttings to dry in air for several days. Insert the cuttings in the medium only as far as needed to hold them in place. Leaf cuttings may be used but the resulting plants will be smaller.
