Caring for Sedum Rubrotinctum Pork and Beans

  • Be careful when touching this succulent plant, as it can irritate the skin of people. Make sure that no pets or children eat this plant. Jellybean plant leaves are delicate and can fall off easily.
  • Also make sure that no pets or children eat this plant. Jelly bean plant leaves are delicate and can fall off easily. Prepare your outdoor planting site in full sun by digging out a hole twice as big as the root area of the sedum to be planted or prepare for container growing by thoroughly washing the pot in hot soapy water.
  • Mix 3 parts sand with 2 parts garden or potting soil, 2 parts compost, 1 part charcoal and one-half part crushed eggshell. Fill the garden hole or the container with this mixture and water lightly. Allow to settle, then top off the hole or container.
  • Plant the sedum plant just to the root line in the soil mix. Let a leaf cutting dry out before planting if you are propagating a new sedum; stick the cutting about an inch into the soil and keep it uniformly moist until signs of new growth appear.
  • Place container-grown S. rubrotinctum in a south- or west-facing full-sun location and bring it inside when night temperatures fall below 40 degrees.
  • Divide your S. rubrotinctum every three to five years, replacing the soil mix with a fresh batch each time to preclude excessive build-up of soil salts.
  • Spray as needed with insecticidal soap or neem oil to control aphids, which are the chief plant pest for S. rubrotinctum when grown indoors.
