The aeonium sunburst may require a bit more water than most succulents. This is because it’s an aeonium succulent and aeonium succulents do have a small root system which will require a little more water.

Water around 1-2 days a week or use the soak and dry method. The soak and dry method means to stick your finger into the soil. If the soil feels very dry then go ahead and water the succulent. 

In the summer aeoniums do tend to go dormant, which means they are developing their roots during warm and dry climates. Cut back on watering because of chances of root rot. You don’t want the roots to rot during dormancy, this is why you need to cut back on watering during dormancy.

Where to Plant:

Aeonium sunburst will need to be grown in an area that’s giving it at least 6 hours of sunlight/light every single day. When growing indoors you still must make sure it gets enough sunlight/light. Grow it near a southern facing window, this will give it enough sunlight. 

Again, aeonium sunburst isn’t cold hardy, cold, frost, and freezing temperatures will harm or kill this succulent. If you live in an area that gets under 30 degrees then you will have to move and grow it indoors during the cold winter season. Make sure to grow it in a container outdoors so if you have to move it indoors it’s very easy to do.

Aeonium Sunburst Propagation

The aeonium sunburst can be propagated by cuttings and leaves. It’s very easy to do it just takes a little time and patience.


Propagating the Aeonium Sunburst by cuttings is probably the easiest way to propagate this succulent! You just need to gently cut off a stem on the succulent and let it sit out for 2-3 days so a callus forms. After a callus forms then go ahead and plant the cutting in well-draining succulent soil. Grow in full shade for 1 week and then move to full sun. Water when the soil looks or feels very dry.


Gently twist and pull off a leaf from the succulent. Wait 1-2 days for a callus to form so it can root. Plant in well-drained succulent soil, water when the soil looks or feels very dry. Give it full shade for a week and then full sun. Make sure to use a leaf that is healthy and bright. Also make sure to get a clean cut off from the leaf, making sure no part of the leaf is on the stem.
