The common name for dudleya is “liveforever” because some can live 50 to 100 years—in the right spot. Protect the succulent from hot afternoon sun in summer.The powdery coating (farina) that makes certain species silvery-white acts as a sunscreen by reflecting UV rays.

How to grow and maintain the plant

Light:
Thrives best in full sun to light shade. In indoor an east or west-facing window where they receive four to six hours of sunlight is ideal.

Soil:
It grows well in a well-drained succulent mix, with an ideal pH around 6.0 (slightly acidic) or an equal part sharp sand with all-purpose potting mix.

Water:
keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. You can allow the topsoil to become slightly dry between each watering.

Dudleya plants do not require a lot of water and can thrive with minimal watering.

Repotting:
Re-pot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To re-pot, a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide. Place the plant in its new pot and backfill with potting soil, spreading the roots out as you re-pot. Leave the plant dry for a week or so, then begin to water lightly to reduce the risk of root rot.

Pests and Diseases:
It has no serious pest or disease problems. Mealybugs can be a problem, and if dead leaves are not expelled from the plant, it can attract other insect pests or have problems with fungus.
