Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Aeonium ‘Kiwi’

Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ is monocarpic, meaning that after it flowers, it will die. However, as it easily propagates from stem cuttings and offsets, you will be able to enjoy this plant for years to come.

Watering

‘Kiwi’ has typical water needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.

Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Aeonium ‘Kiwi’

Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ is a prolific propagator, growing many offsets.

Cuttings

To grow Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.

Offsets

‘Kiwi’ will produce small offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.

Seeds

When growing Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ from seed, be sure that the temperature is warmer, or you are using a grow light and seed warmer. Sow seeds in well-draining soil, watering whenever the soil is dry. Germination can take several weeks or longer, depending on your growing environment.
