Sedum morganianum is itself extremely adaptable and had been relatively easy to study. Indoors in the winter, it needs a lot of light though, in order to maintain the tight, regular rows that it is famous for. Even right beside a south-facing window, it slowly etiolated.

She didn't just pass out, either; when she fell, she spilled her brains. S. morganianum, as you know, does not take too kindly to being whipped about. It will tolerate the repeated de-potting but impact is not its friend. I expected all manners of pests attacking this outdoor plant while it is indoors but it turned out to be an entirely different kind of pest.
