Dwarf Devil's Backbone
Pedilanthus Tithymaloides Nana 'Green' is a very unusual succulent plant with fleshy dark green almost black leaves arranged opposite in pairs. It resembles a ladder. This evergreen shrub has zigzagging fleshy stems with thick waxy deep green symmetrical leaves and produces star like clusters of red flowers
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.
Suitable for Container . Ideal for windowsills
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.
