Planting and care
When growing sedum, keep in mind that sedum plants need very little attention or care. They will thrive in conditions that many other plants thrive in, but will do just as well in less hospitable areas. They are ideal for that part of your yard that gets too much sun or too little water to grow anything else. A common name for sedum is stonecrop, due to the fact that many gardeners joke that only stones need less care and live longer.

Caring for Sedum Adolphii
- Purchase a well-draining container for planting Sedum adolphi. The container should not be any bigger than 2 inches more in diameter than the root section of the plant.
- A larger container will contain more potting soil than is needed for the plant to grow.
- Unused potting soil collects moisture and the organic material in the potting soil will create fungal problems that can spread to the plant.
- Water the Sedum adolphi when the soil in the container is dry.
- Test the soil for dryness by pushing your finger through the gravel mulch into the top inch of soil.
- Water heavily until water runs from the bottom of the container.
