Ice plant. Reddish-purple. Spring and summer. 250 mm. Easy.

Planting and care

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Bright sunlight, but benefits from afternoon shade when planted in hot, dry climates. Dry, well-drained soil. Water the plant deeply when the soil is completely dry, then allow the soil to dry before watering again. Should be kept on dry side as the plant rots in soggy soil. Night temperatures of 50 degrees. 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.

Typical uses of Aptenia

Special features:

Ornamental use: Aptenia cordifolia is often planted in pots or as a ground cover.

Medicinal use: Aptenia cordifolia is used medicinally as an anti-inflammatory, as a dressing (poultice) and deodorant. The plant is also used as a love and good luck charm.

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.
