Care Guide

Watering: The plant needs typical watering, just like every other succulent. Don’t let the water stay too long on the soil, as it will cause root rot. You may use the soak-and-dry method to prevent overwatering. Make sure to water your plant even in winter, especially if the soil has dried out.

Healthy Soil Mix: In choosing a pot for your Aeonium Emerald Ice, make sure that it has holes so that the water can flow easily after watering it. This plant grows well in humus-rich, moist, but well-drained soil.

Ideal Sunlight and Temperature: Aeonium Emerald Ice prefers full sunlight and doesn’t grow well in cold weather. Most likely, it will survive that zone 9a-11b at 20°F temperature. It can be planted outdoors, but it is best to keep it indoors during the winter season as this plant is not frost-hardy. Strong sunlight is crucial in making sure your Aeonium Emerald Ice can grow beautifully.

Fertilizer: You may feed fertilizer to Emerald Ice every two weeks during its growing season. It is better to use liquid fertilizer to ensure that it is diluted. Also, avoid feeding it during its dormant season.

Pests and Diseases

Aeonium Emerald Ice doesn’t have any serious pests or disease problems. Keep an eye on slugs that might cause some damage to your plant, but aside from that, this plant is generally healthy and strong.

Propagation

It can be propagated through cuttings, leaves, offsets, or seeds. Aeonium Emerald Ice is an easy plant to propagate and might not need much repotting, giving your plant a better chance to stay intact. The only essential time to repot is when you bring it home from the store. It is best to plant your Aeonium Emerald Ice in April, May, and June, from mid-spring to summer.

Cuttings and leaves methods:

To propagate by cuttings, make sure you use sterilized scissors or knives. For propagation through leaves,  make sure that you cleanly remove the leaves from the mother plant. Ensure you allow the removed part to be callous from 2 to 3 days before planting in well-draining soil.

Offsets and seeds methods:

For offset propagation, make sure you wait several years for the mother plant to produce an offset. When removing an offset from the mother plant, make sure that you are using a sterilized knife. Remove any extra soil on the offset before repotting it after several days. Propagating through seeds is not advisable as it might take a longer period. If you choose this method, make sure that you use well-draining soil and better if you put your pot outdoors for better sunlight.
