I. Light:

  1. Full Sun Exposure: Place the ‘Desert Rose’ succulent in full sun to encourage prolific flowering and compact growth.

II. Temperature:

  1. Warm Climate Ideal: Thrives in warm climates; maintain a temperature range of 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C).

V. Humidity:

  1. Low Humidity Tolerance: Thrives in low humidity environments; does not require additional humidity.

IX. Pests and Diseases:

  1. Watch for Aphids and Spider Mites: Monitor for aphids and spider mites, common pests, and treat promptly if detected.
  2. Prevent Root Rot: Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot; avoid overwatering.

X. Aesthetic Tips:

  1. Highlight Blooms: Showcase the spectacular blooms of the ‘Desert Rose’ by placing it in a prominent, well-lit location.
