If it loses too many leaves, the cause may be the effect of too dry hot air and a scorching sun. It is necessary to transfer the plant to a more suitable place.

Temperature:

 This species grows well in a wide range of temperatures. At room temperature it will grow throughout the year. But in winter it is better to arrange the plant for a short period of rest and transfer it to a less lit and cooler place where the temperature drops below 13 ° C. The minimum temperature that this species can tolerate is 2 ° C.

Substrate, growing media and repotting:

 Aichryson laxum are usually put in a standard soil mixture. Since this plant has a small root system, it does not need large pots. The adult plant grows well in pots with a diameter of 10-13 cm. In spring, if necessary, a plant that did not die after flowering is transplanted into the pot a larger size. When grown in the garden, this succulent is planted in sandy, loamy or clayey, well drained, slightly acidic soil with a pH of about 6.1-6.5.

Watering:

 During the period of active growth, the plant should be watered sparingly, the soil mixture should be well saturated with water during irrigation. Between waterings the soil should dry out to half its depth. During the rest period, watering is reduced, not allowing, however, complete drying of the soil.

Fertilizer:

 If Aichryson laxum has a rest period in winter, then it is necessary to feed the plant only during active growth, introducing a standard liquid fertilizer every two weeks. If there is no rest period, the fertilizer can be given throughout the year. When growing in the garden, two or three additional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer during the entire growing season are sufficient.

Reproduction:

 The plant is easily propagated by apical cuttings 8-10 cm long, which are cut in spring or summer. From the cuttings you need to remove the lower leaves and plant it in a slightly moistened soil mixture consisting of equal parts of peat and coarse sand or perlite. Cuttings should be put in a bright place and gently poured, so that the soil does not dry out. Rooting occurs within three or four weeks. When the cuttings take root, they are transplanted into pots with a diameter of 8 cm into a standard soil mixture and are looked after as adults. In addition, after flowering, numerous seeds of the plant themselves are scattered and easily planted.
