How to take care of Santolina Chameacyparissus
Choose a sunny location which receives a little afternoon shade. Because ice plants are succulents, they do not tolerate wet soil. Excellent drainage in winter is required as cold wet conditions will cause root and stem rot. Allow plants to completely dry out between water applications, and limit water if possible in the late autumn to ensure roots are dry through the winter months when dormant. Plants have good tolerance for heat and drought once established. Cuttings are easily rooted in early summer.
