Description

Description

Fertilizer Requirement: Feed monthly with a half-strength of a liquid fertilizer during the growing season. No fertilizer is needed late in fall and winter.


Container Size: 1″ starter plant, *Terra Cotta pot in photo display sold separately


Bloom Season: Spring, Summer


Plant Growth: Upright, slightly branching.


Plant Color: Variegated: Green/White/Pink


Suggested Uses: Indoor containers and succulent arrangements.

9, 10, 11, 12

Special Characteristics:

  • Sun, sun, sun! The more light it receives, the more likely it is to bloom and fruit. The fruit is edible and delicious!
  • The more light received, the more colorful the foliage.
  • Wait until the plant begins to wrinkle a bit, then give it a good drink. As with a new cutting, make sure not to water a newly repotted prickly pear for a brief period to avoid rotting its roots.
  • Skill Level: Beginner

Mimi, the Mimosa pudica (Sensitive Plant)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Mimi. She has a reputation for quickly closing her leaves and looking wilted. Her tendency towards sensitivity just means she feels sensations and emotions more deeply than others. But don't worry, she just needs some "me time" and she'll open up and be back at the party. She's a great friend for kids, helping them develop an interest in plants, and delightful for adults too! Her occasional flowers are pink puffballs right out of a storybook. Mimi enjoys a room with bright indirect light and an even touch with the water (she's not a fan of soggy roots).

Axel, the Senecio Stapeliiformis (Pickle Plant)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. 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.
