Introducing the Aeonium 'Sunburst', is a striking succulent plant with a large rosette of variegated leaves that belongs to the Aeonium genus. Native to the Canary Islands, the Aeonium sunburst has several other common names such as Copper pinwheel, Aeonium decorum tricolor, sunburst aeonium, Copper pinwheel tricolor, or Aeonium decorum sunburst. 

The sunburst aeonium is a visually appealing and easy-to-care-for succulent plant with variegated leaves resembling pinwheels. Its vibrant copper color adds warmth and elegance to rock gardens or indoor spaces, making it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts. 

With its vibrant and unique rosette-shaped foliage, and variegated thick fleshy spoon-shaped leaves, the Aeonium sunburst can grow up to 24 inches tall and wide. The foliage is a captivating display of vibrant colors, with each leaf's center being bright green and the outer edges adorned with yellow, cream, pink, or orange shades. This coloration can become more intense when exposed to direct sunlight. 

The Aeonium sunburst blooms in spring with small, star-shaped pale yellow-white flowers. Aeonium succulent is a monocarpic plant, which means that it dies after flowering. While the Aeonium sunburst flower is not the main attraction, it adds a delicate touch and can attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. 

When it comes to propagation, the Aeonium Sunburst can be easily propagated through stem cuttings. This Aeonium succulent can also be propagated from leaf cuttings, although it may take longer for new plants to develop. 

Additionally, it’s important to note that the Copper pinwheel sunburst aeonium is considered friendly to both humans and pets. 

Watering Needs 

In the spring, during the growing season, the Aeonium Sunburst has moderate watering needs. It's important to keep the soil evenly moist but protect it from too much moisture. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings and then water thoroughly, making sure the water reaches the root zone. It's always a good idea to check the moisture level of the soil before watering to avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot. 

Aeoniums can go dormant in summer and don't need water except in dry conditions. Water moderately and feed every two or three weeks with a balanced liquid feed. In winter, restrict water to prevent shriveling foliage. 

Remember, the exact watering needs may vary depending on factors such as the climate, humidity, and the specific conditions of your succulent plant's environment. It's always a good idea to observe your Aeonium Sunburst closely and adjust the watering accordingly to ensure its health and well-being. 

Light Requirements 

Like other succulents, when growing your Aeonium sunburst indoors, it thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window where it can receive 4-6 hours of bright, filtered sunlight each day. However, be cautious of placing it in direct, harsh sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. If you notice the leaves stretching or becoming leggy, it may be an indication that it needs more bright sunlight. In that case, consider using a grow light to supplement its light requirements. 

If you are growing your Aeonium sunburst outdoors, it enjoys full sun to partial shade. It can tolerate direct sunlight, but it's important to acclimate it gradually to prevent sunburn. Start by placing it in a spot with partial shade and gradually expose it to more sunlight over a few weeks. This will help the plant adjust to the intensity of the sun. Just make sure it gets a minimum of 4-6 hours of sunlight each day for optimal growth and coloration. 

Remember, the Aeonium Sunburst's light requirements may vary depending on your specific location and climate. Observe your plant closely and adjust its placement accordingly to ensure it receives the right amount of light for healthy growth and vibrant colors. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

When it comes to soil, the Aeonium sunburst pinwheel prefers well-drained soil that allows excess water to flow through easily. A good choice is a succulent potting mix, which is specifically formulated to provide the right balance of moisture retention and drainage. You can also create your own mix by combining regular potting soil with perlite or coarse sand to improve drainage. Instead, make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally use our specialized succulent potting mix that contains 5 natural substrates and mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your sunburst succulent to thrive. 

As for fertilizer, the Aeonium Sunburst doesn't require a lot of feeding. During the growing season, you can use a balanced (5-10-5), water-soluble NPK fertilizer specifically formulated for succulent plants. Follow the instructions for the correct dilution rate and frequency of application. Remember, it's always better to under-fertilize than over-fertilize, as excessive nutrients can cause damage to the plant. 

During the dormant period, which is typically in fall and winter, it's best to avoid fertilizing altogether. The plant's growth slows down during this time, and it doesn't require as much nutrients. Instead, focus on providing the plant with proper light and water to support its resting phase. 

Remember, every plant is unique, so it's important to observe your sunburst aeonium closely and adjust its care based on its specific needs. With the right soil and proper fertilization, your Aeonium Sunburst will thrive and display its stunning colors. 

Hardiness Zone & More 

When growing your sunburst succulent plant indoors, it can adapt well to a wide range of temperatures. It prefers temperatures between 60-75°F, which are typical indoor temperatures. It's important to avoid extreme temperature fluctuations and drafts, as they can stress the plant. As for humidity, the Aeonium Sunburst is quite adaptable and can tolerate average indoor humidity levels. You don't need to worry too much about providing extra humidity, but if the air in your home is very dry, you can occasionally mist the leaves with water to increase humidity around the sunburst aeonium. 

If you are living in USDA zones 9-11, you can grow your aeonium sunburst outdoors year-round. It can handle temperatures as low as 30°F, but it's best to protect it from frost damage and freezing temperatures. If you live in a colder climate, you can grow it as a potted plant and bring it indoors during the winter months. As for humidity, the Aeonium Sunburst can tolerate a wide range of humidity levels, from dry to moderately humid. Just make sure the soil is well-drained to prevent waterlogged conditions, which can lead to root rot. 

Remember, these are general guidelines, and the specific temperature and humidity requirements may vary based on your location and climate. It's always a good idea to monitor your Aeonium sunburst closely and make adjustments as needed to ensure its optimal growth and health.
