About Curio repens / Mini Blue Chalk Sticks

Curio repens, commonly known as Mini Blue Chalk Sticks, exhibits a trailing growth habit with dense, powder-blue foliage, creating a visually appealing carpet. Typically ranging from 6 to 12 inches in height, this low-growing perennial is well-suited for arid and coastal environments, creating a cascading effect in containers or garden landscapes.

How to care for Curio repens / Mini Blue Chalk Sticks

Light: Curio repens need bright and direct sunlight for at least 6 hours a day. If grown indoors, place it near a south-facing window or under a grow light. If grown outdoors, protect it from intense afternoon sun in summer to prevent sunburn.

Soil: Curio repens prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. You can use a commercial succulent or cactus mix, or make your own by mixing equal parts of potting soil, coarse sand, and perlite or pumice. Avoid using soil that is too heavy or holds too much moisture, as this can cause root rot.

Water: Curio repens are drought-tolerant and does not need frequent watering. Water it only when the soil is completely dry, and then water thoroughly until the excess water drains out of the pot. Do not let the plant sit in water or soggy soil, as this can cause fungal diseases and rot. Reduce watering in winter, when the plant is dormant, and do not water at all if the plant is shedding its old leaves and growing new ones.

Fertilizer: Curio repens does not need much fertilizer, but you can apply a low-nitrogen plant food once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). You can also use a weak compost tea or a succulent plant food for container plants. Do not fertilize in winter, when the plant is resting.

Pruning: Curio repens does not need much pruning, but you can trim off any dead, damaged, or diseased leaves or stems. You can also cut back the plant in late summer, if it becomes too leggy or overgrown. Use clean and sharp scissors or pruning shears, and disinfect them before and after each use. You can use the cuttings to propagate new plants.

Propagation: Curio repens can be easily propagated by cuttings, leaves, offsets, or seeds. To propagate by cuttings, take a stem cutting of about 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) long, and let it dry for a few days until a callus forms on the cut end. Then, plant it in moist and well-draining soil, and water it lightly. It should root in a few weeks.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!

Lost plants

I lost all 3 of them too mealy bugs. I tried treating one of them. There was no way. I couldn’t risk contaminating my collection. They were beautiful plants .

Dear customer

Sorry for the mealybugs on succulent. We understand that severe-scale insects can be challenging to control. If possible, we recommend using 70% concentration alcohol to spray the plant until all scale insects on the surface are cleared. Afterward, consider repotting to avoid any remaining insect eggs in the soil. Monitor for a while, and if no scale insects are observed, you can proceed with regular plant care like your other plants.

We provide a 14-day quality guarantee for all our plants, including protection against pests. If you encounter such issues within this period, please contact us promptly with pictures. We'll arrange a replacement for you and do our best to assist in rescuing the plant.

Have a good day!
