Can Ice plant br grwon indoors?

noplantwiz(NC)June 6, 2011

Can you grow ice plant inside? I have one with hot pink flowers. It did have a couple of flowers on it but has stopped blooming and now the leaves are turning yellow and falling off from the plant end towards the tip end. It is in a south ( kind of south east )facing window but only gets really super bright light in the morning and then just bright the rest of the day?

It probably depends on the species. Do you have any pictures?

Aiozaceae generally need a lot of light and are probably not that suitable for indoor growing so if you CAN put it outdoors in the warmer months you might want to.

I looked for pictures of my plant. At first I thought it might be a lipstick plant instead but then I found a picture of a Baby Sun Rose ice plant and that is what mine looks like. I knew mine didn't have the little thin icicle like leaves like most of the ice plants so I had to look for one with the bigger leaves.

In Ireland, the plant known as Ice Plant is Sedum spectabile, a succulent.

I ALWAYS think of Ice Plant as Delosperma spp. Interesting!

Take a picture of your plant and post it here.

I have just go a beautiful ice plant I am wanting to make it an indoor plant! What are the best foods ? How often should it be watered? Is it a succulent type that requires little water. Will leaves turn yellow and fall off because of to much water? Lots of questions any advice would be appreciated thank you.
