Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' is a delightful succulent known for its colorful and variegated foliage. Here's a care sheet tailored specifically for Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata':

Light: Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' thrives in bright, indirect light or partial shade. It can tolerate some morning sun, but protect it from intense afternoon sun, especially in hot climates, as this can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' thoroughly but infrequently. Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings. During the dormant period in summer, reduce watering to prevent root rot.

Soil: Plant in a well-draining succulent or cactus mix. A sandy soil with good drainage is ideal to prevent waterlogging. Ensure the pot has drainage holes.

Temperature and Humidity: Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' prefers moderate temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). It can tolerate temperatures down to 50°F (10°C) but protect it from frost and freezing conditions. Average indoor humidity levels are usually suitable.

Fertilizing: Feed sparingly with a balanced, diluted fertilizer formulated for succulents during the growing season (spring and summer), about once a month. Avoid fertilizing in fall and winter when growth slows down.

Propagation: Propagate from stem cuttings or offsets. Allow cuttings to callus for a few days before planting in a well-draining succulent mix. Keep the soil lightly moist until roots develop.

Pruning: Trim leggy growth to encourage a bushier habit and remove any dead or damaged leaves as needed to maintain plant health and appearance.

Pests and Problems: Monitor for common succulent pests like aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal issues.

Potting and Repotting: Repot Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' every 2-3 years or when it outgrows its container. Choose a slightly larger pot with drainage holes to accommodate root growth.

Special Care Notes:

  • Protect Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' from hot, dry winds which can cause leaf damage.
  • Variegated varieties may require slightly more light than non-variegated forms to maintain their coloration.
  • Avoid overwatering as Aeoniums are susceptible to root rot in overly moist conditions.

By following these care instructions, you can help your Aeonium kiwi 'Variegata' thrive and display its beautiful variegated foliage in your succulent collection or garden.
