Propagation: Most types of succulents under this species are not really complicated to take care of. Just make sure to take note of the basic rules in taking care of succulents.

The summer season is the best time to repot this plant.

Fertilizer: Fertilize this succulent using an organic liquid variety during the growth season. Do this during the start of spring time until the summer season. This will help boost the defense system of the plant.
