Sedum Lineare Variegatum
Sedum lineare 'Variegatum', aka Cream & Green Carpet Sedum or Sea Urchin Sedum, is a dainty, low-growing succulent with trailing stems that hold thin, pale green leaves with cream margins. Although the new growth often grows upright, it will eventually trail under the weight of the stems. Bright, yellow starburst flowers can appear in early summer.
They love as much sun as possible. The best spot for them is where they can see the sun during the majority of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.
Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.
They need very little attention and care, as long as they are receiving bright light. To propagate, they will send out roots anywhere the stem is touching, hence the name "Carpet Sedum", so lay the stem on some soil and keep your plant in bright light in order to encourage rooting.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
