Delosperma cooperii - Iceplant transplant ?
I'm new to this type of plant. How often should it be watered as a transplant? It was potted in a small 4 inch plastic pot.
I did plant it in poor, dry soil that is mounded a bit, thinking that would be more to it's liking but we live in central Arkansas, where the days are now in upper 90's to 100 with high humidity. The plant's potting soil looked like the typical mix usually found in purchased plants, nothing unusual looking.
Will it wilt and droop when it needs a drink or shrivel up or should I give it a bit of water each day while it's so hot and it is getting established? I've read that it is very hardy and grows in southern California on dry banks so it must not require much water. I'm also curious about how it spreads if it's sitting on such dry soil, as I suspect it roots at the leaf nodes on the runners?
Such pretty bright blooms, just don't want to kill it before I have a chance to enjoy. :-)
My thanks for your advice.
