Succulents are the ideal beginner plant because they need almost no attention. The only thing they’re fussy on is light. They need to be somewhere bright, like a windowsill or anywhere close to a window or skylight. That’s their only big ask. You hardly ever have to water them and there’s no other upkeep involved. This set is made up of plants with a mix of colours and unusual shapes. They may be tiny but they have big personalities.
Pots not included set includes:
Mimi – Scientifically known as haworthia limifolia, she has triangular ridged leaves that earn her the amazing popular name of fairy’s washboard. Those fat leaves are full of water-holding gel. She won’t grow more than about 4” tall. If her leaf edges turn brown it means she’s getting too much sun and would like to move somewhere a bit less bright.
Levi – Their scientific name is crassula arborescens, but they’re popularly known as the silver dollar plant, because of their thick, silvery, round leaves. This one will eventually grow quite large if you let it, but you can cut their stems back to keep them small. They may grow pink flowers in spring.
Gabi – Gasteria is a relative of the classic houseplant aloe vera, but much much smaller. Her pretty pointed green leaves are speckled with pale dots. She almost never needs water so only give her a drink if her leaves start to wrinkle. She likes bright light but if her leaves turn yellow it means she’s getting too much sun.
Lila – This little beauty is echeveria lilacina, or ghost echeveria, which grows pale grey-blue leaves in a striking rosette shape. Like the others, she likes lots of light and very little water. As she grows, her outer leaves may turn brown. This is nothing to worry about. She’s just getting rid of old growth to make way for new leaves, which grow from the centre. You can pick or snip off brown leaves.
You also have the option to choose sets with ceramic or clay pots included. Each set will contain 4 of the same pot, perfect for your mini succulents.
Please note your set may include different varieties if unavailable.
