Jet Beads Sedeveria is a small, yet beautiful, succulent produced as a hybrid of sedum and echeveria plants. Its diminutive size, reaching only 4 inches (10 cm.) tall at maturity, is perfect for small containers and for summertime outdoor displays in pots. Leaves grow from a single stem, simulating the appearance of beads. When exposed to cooler temperatures, the plant darkens to an almost jet-black color; hence, its name.
Native to: South Africa, Madagascar
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: full sun to partial shade
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.
