Sedum Plants
Q.

Red sedum

Anonymous added on June 9, 2015 | Answered

I purchased about 40 'plants' online. They arrived more as 2-3" roots. I did not get specific instructions on how to plant. I made the bad assumption, I guess, that I needed to plant them about 1" deep. Only one ever came up. I've got replacement 'plants' and when they arrived, I researched more thoroughly and came upon this website. It was the only one that explained I should more or less 'lay them' on top of the soil, or under a fine layer of dirt. My question is, how much water until established? As they are succulents, they shouldn't require extra watering once established (other than natural rain in our area). I don't want to under/over water these new starts. Thank you!

Generally, watering for the first couple weeks should be sufficient time for the roots to establish. The, water only when the soil is dry.
