How to tell when your Cotyledon pendens succulent needs water
This plant has fat round leaves. Once you saturate the soil, wait until the soil is dry to the touch before watering the plant again. The leaves on this plant will start to deflate and look slightly wrinkled when it is REALLY ready for water. You can water before they get to this point, but take care not to overwater.
It is better to err on the side of underwatering this succulent plant than overwatiner it. Cotyledon pendens have thin stems that turn very woody as they mature. They do not like to have too much water to take up and the roots do not like to sit in soggy or too damp of soil for very long.
Please note, the plant you receive may not be in bloom at the time of purchase. Coloration changes on the leaves are based on season, drought, temperatures and light conditions.
You will receive a 4” pot size of rooted starters of Cotyledon pendent similar to pictured. Please note that this plant ships bare root without the pot.
