Pickle Plant 'Delosperma echinatum' in a Hanging Basket 6"
Delosperma echinatum is a succulent plant, native to South Africa.
It is also known as the Pickle Plant.
The new genus Delosperma was erected by English botanist N. E. Brown in 1925, with this species later acknowledged as the type species.
PP's need ample sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent watering to prevent rot.
House your Delosperma echinatum in a container with drainage holes, and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite.
Its water needs are low, so water lightly when the soil is fully dry.
In spring and summer, give it a monthly feed with liquid fertiliser to help it grow.
Be sure to use fertilizer made for succulents.
And delicious as it may look, don't be tempted to eat it.
It's not toxic, but it won't taste great.
Pickle plants need a lot of sun to thrive and prefer bright, indirect light.
Over-watering symptoms include rapidly yellowing leaves, wilting, mushy leaves or stem and plant death.
Be sure to study its environment.
A position that offers too much sunlight will dry out the soil far too quickly, and will eventually scorch the plant's leaves.
