We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Sedum hernandezii, native to Puebla, Mexico, is related to Sedum furfuraceum. It forms clusters of stems to 4" in height with very chubby emerald green leaves that have the same "cracked" epidermis as Sedum furfuraceum. Large, star-shaped yellow flowers appear in winter and spring. Sedum hernandezii is one of the "Jellybean" sedums so named for their exceedingly plump and colorful jellybean shaped leaves. A very low grower, this sedum does well as a potted specimen, great for dish gardens, windowsills, wreaths or small area ground cover, and works well in the nooks and crannies of a rock garden landscape. They like to be moderately moist but never overly wet. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Almost any good potting mix or porous soil with adequate drainage will suit these succulents. Sedums like good air circulation, and little or no fertilizer is required. Outdoors provide partial sun to light shade, but they will be unhappy and lose their characteristic color and shape unless given lots of bright light when kept indoors. It has excellent drought and cold tolerance but protect from frost to prevent scarring.
