They grow quickly, have brilliant colors, and bloom with daisy-like flowers all year. In low light, they retain a green hue with reddish highlights, particularly around the stem. The stem and the bean-shaped plump leaves will turn crimson red under direct sunlight! They are best used as fillers in dish garden arragements.
Caring for your ruby necklace:
Fortunately, these cuties can thrive in both direct and indirect light. The more direct sunlight these plants receive, the brighter their purple and red hue becomes. In low light, they retain a more greenish color with purple stems and accents. In my experience, these plants thrive well in low light circumstances in gardens and on patios, but they are a little more difficult to maintain happily indoors. They go into dormancy during the hot summer months, so give them more shade and water less.
These plants, like most succulents, dislike being overwatered, especially if they are planted in more shady and cooler settings. They prefer well-draining soil that dries completely between waterings. During their growing seasons, Spring and Fall, they like more moisture in their soil and can be watered more regularly (like once per week).
When these plants become too long, you can cut them back. You can transplant the trimmed ends.
