A trailing succulent that thrives when given the proper light, Ruby Necklace (Othonna capensis) is a recent favorite of our team. The purple stems contrast beautifully with the emerald leaves and yellow flowers will occasionally add another pop of color.
High Light - This plant prefers direct or bright indirect light for 6 or more hours a day. Sitting in a south or west facing window is often a good location for a high light plants. These plants want as much light as you can give them!
Water Infrequently - Water these plants every 2-4 weeks when the soil is completely dry. Before watering, check the soil with your finger. If you feel any remaining moisture, wait another week before watering. When you do water, soak soil thoroughly and allow to drain. Almost all houseplants will use less water in the winter than in the summer, so adjust watering frequency seasonally based on how the soil feels. For best results, plant using a well draining potting mix such as a cactus and succulent blend.
Other notes - When given enough light Ruby Necklace will turn more purplish-red. In Minnesota, this will typically only happen if the plant is outside during the warm months.
