How to Grow and Care for Curio rowleyanus ‘Variegatus’

Light: Outdoors, their preference in summer, keep your Curio plants in partial shade and bright sunlight if grown indoors. They will grow in full shade but will become lank and leggy.

Soil: These plants prefer well-draining soil. For growing Curio indoors, it is essential to use a container with at least one drainage hole at the bottom.

Watering: Curio plants are drought tolerant, but the soil should never be left dry for too long. They need some water during the growing season but be careful not to leave the soil wet for prolonged periods.

Fertilizing: The members of this genus can take a bit more fertilizer than other succulents if you want them to grow fast.

Repotting: You do not need to repot Curio plants often. You can do it when you see that the container becomes too small or shallow.

Propagation: These plants can be grown from seeds or cuttings.
