It is a "winter grower" which is most active in autumn and early spring and heading for summer dormancy, but in favorable growing conditions it keeps going over the summer too and doesn't need particular care. It is quite hardy and can take a light frost and in dry warm-temperate regions these succulents make very impressive out door ground covers.
Growing rate: It is vigorous and quick-growing, speedily forming lateral shoots and low mats.
Watering: They are not at all delicate and can take some water year-round, but the challenge is to help them keep their compact form and prevent elongation of the stem. Water minimally in winter, only when the plant starts shrivelling, water more abundantly when they are growing in the spring and autum, but let the soil dry between soaking. An occasional summer soaking is wise
Light: It needs a bright sunny exposure in winter but keep cool and partially shaded in summer.
Hardiness: It prefer a very bright situation and require a minimum temperature 0°C (But will take frost and is hardy down to -7° C for short periods if it is in dry soil).
