Great for more arid or rock-scaped enclosures and edible (as part of a varied diet) for reptiles such as Tortoises and Bearded Dragons. Assorted colours.
These are rosette-forming plants. The evergreen leaves, similar to cacti, retain water and are often brightly coloured; ranging from various shades of green to pinks, reds, lilacs and pale blue. Flowers will sprout from the centre of the succulent and if left, will produce seeds.
Native to semi-desert areas in Central America, Mexico and South America.
These plants are hardy and will thrive in hot, arid conditions. Water around the base of the plant, taking care not to saturate the soil. Plant in well drained substrate in full sunlight outdoors, or under full spectrum plant growth LED lighting in a vivarium. The plants will often produce offsets, or ‘daughter plants’ which have been asexually produced from the mother plant - essentially cloning itself. The new plants can be detached from the mother and grown individually, or left to form a larger clump.
They can be planted in Tortoise Tables and in grassland or more arid vivariums scattered with rocks. These are edible for all reptiles, though care must be taken to avoid excessive consumption as this plant can have a laxative effect.
Please note: Live plants will naturally vary in size and all sizes are approximate. Photos displaying multiple different colours are an example of the variety we stock, we will send random colours based upon availability.
