    The button-like leaves of this trailing succulent are variegated rich green and burgundy, and each one is threaded with fine white veins. Ideal for baskets, or trailing over the edges of a pot, the lanky stems will also develop roots if trailed over compost or placed in a terrarium.

  • Home care: Keep it in a semi-shaded or bright spot with protection from direct sun and water moderately in summer - allowing the compost to get reasonably dry before repeating the process. Water sparingly in winter. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter.
