Here are some of the plant characteristics to look for when identifying succulents:
- Leaf – shape, size and thickness.
- Color – of leaves, flowers or stems.
- Markings or bumps on the leaves.
- Flower – shape, color, number of blooms and petals.
- Stem – color, texture, length.
- Ciliate hairs.
- Epicuticular wax.
- Spikes, spines or smooth.
Thereof, how do you care for Gollum Jade?
Water regularly in spring and summer, allowing soil to totally dry out before you water again. Cut back on watering in fall and water lightly and infrequently in winter. As with many succulent types, overwatering is the primary cause of death among them. Fertilize lightly in spring.
In respect to this, how do you care for Kalanchoe humilis?
Best color and form in bright light. Watering:
|Blooming Season||Early summer|
|Common Name||Thumb cactus.|
|Frost Tolerance||90 f|
How do I find out what type of plant I have?
Take a look at the shape of the leaf when identifying flowers by their leaves. The leaf shape can be round, oval or oblong, lance shaped or elliptic. The pattern of veins in the leaf can also help you figure out the type of plant you are dealing with.
A great option for identification is an app put together by my friend Jacki at Drought Smart Plants called Succulent ID. You can look at different genera of succulents or search through photos based on characteristics of your succulent.
Gollum Jade is an evergreen succulent. The tips of the green tubular leaves turn red when in full sun. You can look forward to light pink or white star-shaped flowers.
The jade plant is also commonly called a rubber plant and is very toxic to dogs, causing gastric distress, heartbeat irregularities, and depression among other symptoms.
If protected over the winter and given enough light, flapjacks will bloom in late winter to early spring. A tall, spindly flower spike 3-6 feet tall is produced from the center of the rosette.
To grow Kalanchoe luciae “Flapjack” from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a leaf from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
Shriveled paddle leaves and drooping growth are usually signs of overwatering a flapjack succulent. Paddle plants don’t like sitting in soggy, overly-damp soil. Excessive soil moisture quickly leads to root rot, and the succulent will start to die.
