Cotyledon pendens, also known as Cliff Cotyledon, is a succulent plant that is native to South Africa. It is a trailing plant that can grow up to 3 feet long, making it a great choice for hanging baskets or as a trailing plant in a container garden.
The plant has fleshy, green leaves that are shaped like spoons and have a slightly serrated edge. The leaves are covered in a powdery white coating, which helps to protect the plant from the sun and retain moisture. In the summer, the plant produces small, bell-shaped flowers that are pink or red in color.
Cotyledon pendens is a relatively easy plant to care for. It prefers bright, indirect sunlight and well-draining soil. The plant can tolerate some drought, but it is important to water it when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering can cause root rot, so it is important to avoid letting the plant sit in water.
In terms of temperature, Cliff Cotyledon prefers warm temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). It can be grown outdoors in USDA hardiness zones 9-11, but it should be brought indoors or protected from frost in colder climates.
Overall, Cotyledon pendens is a beautiful and low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of greenery to any space. With the right care, it can thrive both indoors and outdoors.
