Water. As you would expect with a succulent, Flapjacks are drought-tolerant, and great care should be taken not to overwater. Make sure you allow the soil to dry out fully before rewatering deeply when the weather is hot. During the winter, they will need very minimal watering or none at all.
Hereof, why is my flapjack plant red?
Flapjack plants grow well in partial sun to full sun. Green leaves will color up to red if the plant is placed in full sun. When kept as a houseplant, provide plenty of indirect bright light, but avoid direct sunlight coming through a glass window. This can burn the plant.
