Description

This striking succulent has soft-looking leaves arranged in a loose rosette formation, with a "frost" like coating that gives it an ethereal appearance. This extra-large variety can result in blooms of 15 cm in size. Grows on top of a short stalk that can get 15 cm tall. Fred Ives has foliage that can change color depending on the amount of water and sunlight they are getting, from a glowing pinkish-purple one to almost any color of the rainbow, which makes them ideal for adding color accent in rock gardens or plant containers mixed with other plants.

How To Care For

Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Can be kept indoors as long as it receives 5-6 hours of direct sunlight (south-facing window). Plant in a well-draining soil medium. Water evenly, and wait for the soil to dry out between waterings. Do not overwater, it will rot.
