Description for null

Aptenia cordifolia is a sun-loving perennial that produces small, bright reddish-purple, daisy-like blooms atop thick, succulent stems. In cooler climates, Aptenia cordifolia is grown as an annual.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Ice plant. Reddish-purple. Spring and summer. Up to 60 cm Easy.

Planting and care

Re-pot when the plant performs clump and goes beyond the pot size. It should be done before or after the rainy season and in the spring season. Re-pot with the following proportions: 3 parts of potting soil, 1 part of grit (pumice), 1 part of the horticultural-grade sand, 1/2 part of the compost etc.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun, partial sun, at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day. Avoid excess organic contents in the soil. No need much. Water the plant deeply when the soil is completely dry. Ideal: 22 to 35 degrees C Use a regular liquid or granular fertilizer two to three times during the growing season.

Caring for Aptenia

    Red apple ground covers remain smaller and manageable in dryer soils, but grow aggressively and can quickly become invasive when grown in moist soil conditions. Space multiple plants 18 to 36 inches apart. This allows for ample airflow and reduces the risk of fungal diseases such as root rot.

Harvesting

NA

When delivered the rose plant has dried....and this aptenia is good but from the last week its getting rotten up
5 / 5 Sakshi Shekhar 14 March 2018
Aptenia was pretty much rotten at the place where its branches were tied. Even after 10 days of caring for it, its the same. The rose plant that came free as offer was dried up on arrival
5 / 5 Srilalitha Gayatri 15 December 2017
Plant was delivered in good condition, after a month, it started flowering... Happy with the plant... The pot size is too small and the plant will go further only if is replanted in a bigger pot.
