Sun & Location Requirements for "Lenophyllum Reflexum"
Lenophyllum Reflexum needs full sun to partial shade in order to thrive. While this variety needs plenty of bright light, it is important not to place it in direct sunlight for extended periods of time as this can cause damage or scorching to the leaves and stems. A shadier spot with indirect light could be just what Lenophyllum Reflexum needs.
As per this succulent profile, it is only able to stay healthy when the environment temperature is above the range of zone 9a from 20° F to 25° F (-6.7 ° C to -3.9° C).
Lenophyllum Reflexum is an incredibly resilient species that can survive temperatures as low as 0°F. It has a thick, waxy cuticle that helps protect it from frost damage, and its leaves are able to retain moisture in even the most arid environments. Its deep root system further helps it survive even the coldest winter conditions.
Lenophyllum Reflexum also benefits from some indirect light throughout the day as well, so make sure you give it enough space to soak up light without becoming too exposed to heat.
Propagating succulents by leaves is a great way to grow new plants from existing ones. Simply cut off a few healthy leaves from the mother plant and place them on top of a potting mix. Water the soil regularly, keeping it moist but not soggy, and soon you'll have brand new succulents!
Succulents can be propagated easily by taking offsets from the mother plant and replanting them in fresh soil. The offset will eventually grow into a new succulent that is identical to its parent.

Growing Lenophyllum Reflexum from seeds is an easy and economical way to produce more plants. Identify a healthy seed by its plumpness, dark color and slightly sticky texture. Once the potting mix has been pre-mixed with well-draining soil, sow the seeds evenly and press lightly into the surface. To ensure germination, keep the container in bright but indirect light and mist the soil gently with a spray bottle.
Lenophyllum Reflexum is generally non-toxic to humans and animals. However, it is important to be aware that certain parts of the plant may contain toxins which can cause mild skin irritation. It is advised that you keep the plants away from small children or pets, as they may unknowingly ingest them and suffer ill effects.
