Dig the planting hole twice as wide and to the same depth as the root-ball. Remove the plant from the container, gently tease the roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots.
Position in hole and backfill, gently firming down. Form a raised or doughnut shaped ring of soil around the outer edge of the plant's root zone. This helps keep water where it's needed. Always water in well after planting to settle the soil around the roots and keep the soil slightly moist for several weeks while the new plant establishes.
Mulch with an organic mulch, such as bark chips or an inorganic mulch like pebbles or stones. Ensure that the mulch is kept away from the base of the plants.
Water when the soil is dry, this may be once a week, depending on weather and soil conditions.
Flapjacks are not fond of water. Avoid sitting them in wet soils as they can suffer from root rot.
These hardy plants can be grown indoors in a well lit area but away from harsh afternoon sun or reflective light.
Like many other succulents, Flapjacks can produce terminal or end of life flowers from the centre of the plant. Although this means the end to the larger plant, many pups will appear at the base, waiting to be planted out and shared.
