Axel, the Senecio Stapeliiformis (Pickle Plant)
Meet Axel! Seeking balance in his life, he grows towards the sky while sending out stabilizing roots. With his intriguing looks and magnetic personality, he easily draws people toward him. But don’t make a fuss over Axel! As a succulent, he has a love of dry conditions and too much water is his downfall. Bright light in all directions is what he loves best or else he’ll grow a little awkwardly towards the nearest source. Remember his love for balance! Rotating him several times a week can keep him on the straight and narrow.
We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent soil.
This plant ships as a 1″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
