Planting & Care
Growing in a greenhouse will also provide sufficient light… but grown indoors for much of the year can create etiolated, weakened and abnormally green plants. The more light the better, with the exception of full sun for those species that can’t tolerate it, or are unaccustomed to (can sunburn severely, and subsequently rot).
Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: 1 to 5 deg. C.
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- Water ideally when soil is getting dry, and not if wet (sounds easy, and really is, but when you have thousands of plants to water, taking time to see if each pot is dry or not takes too much time to me).
- When in doubt, best to skip watering… too much is worse than too little.
Use a sharp knife and cut as close to the parent plant as possible, ensure the offset has some roots. Wait a day for the offset to dry slightly (this reduces the chances of the raw "wound" from rotting), then pot up in a small container using a standard potting or cactus compost mix.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
Caterpillars, mealybugs, and spider mites also cause problems. Avoid spraying and tolerate some leaf damage unless the situation is uncontrolled

Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.

Using pebbles in a garden brings different colours and textures to the garden. Pebbles can also fill up otherwise empty space in the garden, leaving a visual that might be considered more interesting and aesthetic than simple dirt, soil or mulch.
