What does a Mexican Firecracker plant look like?

The Mexican Firecracker is an evergreen succulent with stemless rosettes of spoon-shaped green leaves covered with dense white hairs. The flowers of this plant are simply stunning; urn-shaped red and yellow flowers.

How do you care for the Mexican Firecracker plant?

Like most desert plants, the Mexican Firecracker need bright lighting, and a free draining soil. Although drought tolerant they prefer to be watered as the soil dries out, but before they are completely dry. Unless the terrarium is set up with a deep, bio-active substrate then plants is a dry terrarium are best kept in their pot, which is then disguised with substrate and decor. This allows the plants to be watered as necessary without making the whole substrate too damp.
