Purchased this plant for $1. Got it home, watered and fed it, put it in the sun slowly until it was in full sun part of the day. Now it has lots of new growth.

Trailing succulent with long stems tipped by many small glaucous green leaves, looking a bit like a burro's tail. Flowers appear at the end of the stems and are pinkish red or purple, sometimes orange-yellow, and cup-shaped. When many stems are planted in a container and allowed to grow out for several years, the effect can be spectacular as they cascade over all sides and hang down a considerable distance. Keep plants out of traffic and avoid handling them to reduce the loss of leaves from these hanging stems. Easy to propagate from cuttings (mother plants will branch at the base). Best form with strong light.

3 of the 7 leaf cuttings from outside are currently rooting, and the two I plucked off the main plant seem to be doing ok too. I've put two of the leaves into a pot with a small purple heart vine cutting and they seem to be doing alright but they're not taking off like the ones from outside. I'm quite impressed with the outside ones. Thanks, Cindy-Mom!
