Description

Kleinia petraea is a succulent creeping groundcover with thick succulent stems that root along the ground with green fleshy up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) long egg-shaped leaves that overlap like shingles along the thick stems and blush an interesting purple color in winter. Never in great profusion, or with much regularity, appear the bright orange rayless composite flowers, usually in fall or winter. If planted next to a wall, or in a container, the stems drape downwards as much as 4 feet (1.2 m). Uniquely, the leaves and the flower stand upright from the stems.

Environment

Trailing Jade plants are extremely drought tolerant. They do need some water, during the summer, but do not leave the soil wet for prolonged periods. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings in the winter, when they are somewhat dormant.

Fertilize annually, but lightly. Too much fertilizer will cause a lot of leggy growth.

Landscape Use

Suitable for Hanging Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

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.
