I have a Sedum adolphii 'Lime Gold'. I bought it along with four other succulents and am doing research on each one. All I can find for this one is places to buy them. Could someone help me out and let me know if there are any special things I need to do for this succulent?

Hello Asteria, it will help to know where you are located. Sedums are alpine succulents, so they like cool conditions but you have to keep their planting location very well draining. Are you intending to keep them in containers or in ground?

Hello tarev
I plan on keeping them indoors mostly, it is starting to get cold outside. I am located in Erie so the weather here can be kind of drastic sometimes.

As with most succulents, when indoors position the plant in a warm and bright area, keep the soil very well draining. Adding perlite or pumice in the media helps. It is a low growing succulent and typically indoors some succulents may etiolate, like having longer stems as it tries to reach for more light, so some growers would add a grow light to help the plant.
