Care:

Succulents, known for their moisture-storing capacity, have evolved to survive hot environments. In general, the surrounding temperature should fall somewhere between 40 and 95 degrees F. They should be watered every 2 – 3 weeks. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. In the wintertime, you will need to water them less often. Overwatering can lead to leaf loss, misshapen leaves, root rot, and yellow leaves.

Most thrive with about 3 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Occasionally, too much sunlight can cause scorch marks and brown spots. With too little light, the plant may stretch its leaves outward.

These drought-resistant desert-dwellers are versatile and come in a variety of sizes, colors, and shapes. Be sure to research your specific succulent variety to provide the care it needs.

The main rule of thumb for this plant: Hold back on the water.

Description:

Delosperma Hot Cakes, Fig Fusion is an incredibly tough, deer-and-rabbit resistant, drought-proof groundcover that also makes a great container plant for hot patios. It blooms with bright flowers all summer long. This hardy, carefree plant works well in hot, dry, challenging conditions. The succulent foliage glistens beneath vibrant, showy, purple-pink flowers with white centers. The flowers are intensely fragrant with the scent of vanilla.

Delosperma Hot Cakes, Fig Fusion is an ice plant native to South Africa. The “ice plant” name comes from the shimmering glands that cover the succulent leaves. It thrives in well-drained, gravelly, sandy soils. Plant this one in full sun. Once established in well-drained soil, it rarely needs watering. Consider for rock gardens, borders, pathways, and mixed containers with other hardy succulents.
