Fishhook plants are a good option for a hanging pot or draping over a shelf. They thrive when given at least 4 hours of direct sunlight daily, but can tolerate indirect sunlight. As a member of the Succulent family, they prefer the soil to dry out completely between waterings and water thoroughly. They are suseptible to root rot, so be careful not to overwater. Avoid splashing the leaves when watering to prevent the leaves from rotting. The leaves of this long tailed succulent are very delicate, so take care not to bump into it. Fishhook plants are very easily propegated with the dropped leaves. Fertilize once per month during spring and summer with a diluted low-potency chemical fertilizer.
