Are you ready to add a splash of color and fun to your succulent collection? Look no further than the Jelly Bean plant, also known as 'Sedum rubrotinctum'! These evergreen, low-growing perennial succulents hail from the sunny lands of Mexico and are also known as "pork and beans" or "banana cactus." 

As the plant matures, it grows about 8 inches tall and 20 inches in diameter and has a trailing growth habit, makes wonderful ground covers, and can also be displayed in lovely arrangements. 

The stunning jelly beans succulents are a favorite among houseplants that are easy-going but still gorgeous. The stems of this little guy trail over the side of their container, perfect for hanging baskets!  And let's not forget about those bright-yellow star-shaped flowers that bloom in spring and summer months – they're just an added bonus. 

Jelly bean succulents are a cross between Sedum pachyphyllum and Sedum stahlii, and they have small, chubby leaves that turn bright red or bronze in full (bright) sunlight. Leaf or stem cuttings can be used to propagate the sedum pork and beans. Both are simple and have a high success rate.  

This sedum jelly bean makes a great colorful addition to any dish garden but looks just as stunning standing alone too. So, go ahead and get yourself a 'Sedum rubrotinctum'! 

Watering Needs 

The jelly bean succulent is a species that requires minimal watering. It's important to only water them when the soil has dried out, as too much moisture or overwatering can cause root rot. Succulents, including this one, are prone to rotting if their roots are constantly submerged in moisture. 

As a drought-tolerant plant, the jelly bean sedum has developed an effective mechanism for storing water in its leaves. Oftentimes, people worry about under-watering their plants when they're actually giving them too much water - succulents, in particular, don't thrive well in damp, moist soil, which can lead to root problems. 

Light Requirements 

The jelly bean plant requires a lot of light and should be grown in either full sun or partial shade. When grown in direct sunlight, the color ranges from red to bright green leaves, with the brightest hues. It adds a gorgeous splash of color to potted arrangements. 

New purchased jelly bean leaves can get burned in the full sun as they were probably grown in a greenhouse; therefore, gradually increase their exposure to sunlight. If the sun is too bright and is burning your plant's leaves, consider purchasing a sunshade or moving the plant to a more shaded location. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

The Sedum species favors very airy, sandy soil that drains well. Planting them in ordinary soil will result in compacted roots, stunted growth, and, most likely, root rot. Instead, make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally, use our specialized potting mix that contains organic mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your sedum and other succulents to thrive. 

Ideally, you should look for a natural fertilizer with an approximate blend of 5-10-15 that is higher in phosphorus than nitrogen. The best choice is to use an organic fertilizer as they last longer and keep your soil alive by adding other beneficial compounds and microbes that encourage plant health and nutrient absorption. 

Hardiness Zones & More 

The jelly bean plants require sunny, warm climates to thrive but can tolerate mild cold temperatures. Generally, these are hardy plants that can be grown in the garden in USDA zones 9–11, and they are great houseplants for beginners as they will be fine if you forget to water them for a while. A succulent tends to live for many years and grows slowly. Plant them in the spring after the weather warms up.

Pests & Common Problems of Jelly Bean

Like all succulents, the sedum jelly bean plant can be susceptible to pests and other common problems. One of the most common pests that can affect Jelly beans is mealybugs, which are small, white insects that feed on the sap of the plant.

To prevent mealybugs, it is important to keep the plant clean and free of debris and to avoid overwatering a new plant. 

Another issue that can affect Jelly bean sedum is root rot, which can be caused by overwatering or poor drainage. To prevent root rot, it is important to use a well-draining soil mix and to allow the soil to dry out between waterings. 

Another issue with jelly beans is that if they don't get enough light, they can stretch out and become leggy.  To prevent this, it is important to provide them with bright, indirect light and to rotate them regularly to ensure even growth.

With proper care and attention, these succulents can thrive and make a beautiful addition to your home or garden. 

Jelly Bean FAQs

Are jelly bean succulents cold hardy? 

Jelly bean Succulents are not particularly cold hardy and are best suited to warm, dry climates, and can thrive in USDA zone 9 -11. They can tolerate temperatures down to around 20-25°F for short periods, but prolonged exposure to cold temperatures can damage or kill the plant.

If you live in an area with cold winters, it's best to grow Jelly bean Succulents in containers that can be moved indoors during the winter months. 

How much sunlight does a jelly bean succulent need? 

Jelly bean Succulents prefer bright, direct sunlight for at least 6 hours a day. However, they can also tolerate partial shade, especially in hot summer months. If you are growing Jelly bean succulents indoors, place them near a south or west-facing window where they can receive plenty of sunlight.

If you are growing them outdoors, make sure to protect them from the intense afternoon sun during the hottest months of the year. 

How do you care for jelly bean Sedum? 

Jelly bean Sedum is a low-maintenance plant that is ideal for beginners. The jelly bean plants grow in USDA zones 9 to 11, requiring minimal watering, bright, direct sunlight for at least 6 hours (If indoors, place it near west or southern window), and a well-draining soil mixture. Jelly Bean Sedum doesn't require pruning, but you can promote bushier growth by pinching back the tips of the stems.
