Description

Pedilanthus 'Nana Compacta' is a very unusual succulent plant with fleshy white & grey leaves arranged opposite in pairs. It resembles a ladder. Elongated, elliptic leaves are slightly folded upwards along the midvein, forming a boat-like shape. The stem's zigzag shape is greatly compressed with very short inter-nodes , creating a braided-like texture.

Environment

Grow Pedilanthus in full sun to partial shade in a very well-drained, sand-based soil. In hot summers, shade is recommended for afternoons and so is moisture. Keep the soil drier in winter.

Take care not to over-water, which can cause rotting. Water sparingly, just enough to make the potting mixture moist.

Liquid fertilizer should be used once a month. Plant in well drained sandy mixture.

Landscape Use

Ideal for office Table Top & Windowsills

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
