Position: Full sun /part shade / dappled shade. Soil and water: Water infrequently in the ground. Avoid watering in mid to late summer to avoid rot and collapse. Water regularly in a pot or when soil is dry.
Keeping this in view, do aeoniums like sun or shade?
Aeoniums can be grown outdoors in zones 9 to 11 and, although they will tolerate partial shade, need at least six hours of full sun a day to develop their leaf colors. Indoors in pots Aeoniums need bright sunlight and moisture and do best in shallow containers.
In this regard, can aeonium survive winter?
Winter is the growing season for these succulents. However, they can’t stand frost or cold weather. If you live in such a place, keep your aeoniums indoors. On the other hand, aeoniums can survive droughts because of their unique way of storing water inside the leaves.
How do you care for aeonium lily pads?
They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite.
When succulents are indoors it’s often hard for them to get enough sunlight. Outdoors they generally need about 6 hours of bright, indirect sunlight each day. However, indoors, you’ll want to place your succulents near a window that gets light all day.
Aeoniums are most commonly known for their striking rosettes made up of dense, waxy leaves growing out of a single stem. Stems can be long and branched-out or short and stubby. A unique feature of aeoniums is the way they grow and branch out. They reproduce and form offsets from a single flowerhead.
They can also be grown outdoors in summer, in a pot with summer bedding plants or in a sunny, well-drained border. The main growing season for aeoniums is spring and autumn, when the temperature and light levels are perfect for their growth.
You should only water your Aeoniums when the top layer of soil feels pretty dry. You’ll probably end up watering them about once a week. During the summer months, when they’re dormant, you should cut back on the water. Watering them once a month should be enough during the summer.
