Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Aeonium ‘Sunburst'
Although it does love full sun, ‘Sunburst’ is able to be grown indoors if it receives enough light. Like all Aeoniums, ‘Sunburst’ bruises easily. If your succulent has bruises, they will not harm the plant. New leaf growth will be normal.
Aeonium ‘Sunburst' has typical watering 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 ‘Sunburst' 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, but can also be grown indoors.
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 ‘Sunburst'
Aeonium ‘Sunburst' is easily propagated from stem cuttings. This succulent is monocarpic, so after it flowers, the main plant will die. However, it can take several years for ‘Sunburst' to bloom.
To take a cutting of an Aeonium ‘Sunburst,' use a sharp, sterile knife or pair of scissors. Cut the stem away from the main cluster, and allow the cut to callous over for a few days before planting in well-draining soil.
