The 'Paddle Plant' is a personal favorite here at Succy Crafts. A round vertical grower that will reach up to 12" tall. This succulent plant is a powdery grey color that will turn a bright red and yellow in full sun. A perfect variety to add height to your drought-tolerant landscape, or to have as a focal point in your garden. This type of succulent plant is known as monocarpic. Meaning it will bloom, set seed and then die. Good news is that this plant will easily offset baby plants at the base of their trunks before blooming.
Native to: South Africa
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.
