Like other succulents, Arctic Ice prefers desert-like conditions but tolerates short periods of moisture as long as they are allowed to dry out prior to watering. Arctic Ice is not tolerant of shade or frost and should be grown in full sun with well-draining soil. They are hardy to USDA zone 10.
Keeping this in view, how do you propagate Arctic ice?
To propagate Echeveria Arctic Ice, you can use mature leaves or stem cuttings. Remember what we said about “chicks” growing around their mother’s stem? You can take these little chicks away to transplant them in a new pot. To do this, gently pluck a leaf from your Echeveria Arctic Ice plant and leave it a few days.
Then, do ice plants bloom all summer?
Ice plant flowers grow in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9 and will bloom for most of the summer and fall. Their foliage is mostly evergreen and, because of this, they make a great year-round ground cover. While the plant is evergreen, it will often have some dieback of foliage in the winter.
How do you care for Echeveria Miranda?
They’re desert plants, so they like it warm, dry, and sunny. They hold onto plenty of water in their leaves so they barely need watered and you can usually go weeks at a time between watering them.
- Dry, low light.
- Wet, low light.
- Dry, on a windowsill (brighter light)
- Near a heating vent, medium light.
As with all Echeverias, Subsessilis likes infrequent watering and prefers dry conditions after the plant becomes established. Do not overwater! After watering, allow the soil moisture to dry completely before watering again. Once per week should be adequate.
