This very popular succulent has a red bloom with a thick rubbery ring in the center, giving it the nickname 'Lifesaver Plant', like the candy. It blooms generously from late spring through summer.
This succulent is all bark and no bite. The thick, angular stems have spiked margins that look prickly but are actually soft and harmless. Stems can flush red with strong sun, though these low-growing plants prefer a partial shade when temperatures are high.
Native to South Africa, this cold sensitive succulent is hardy in zone 10 and 11 (cannot go below 35 degrees) and makes a wonderful house plant.
The Huernia arrived a day late since the shipper sent it to the wrong place on the 2nd day in transit....and it sat who knows where over the weekend. Fortunately, due to the excellent packaging and the great, healthy condition of the plant the Huernia arrived in perfect shape. Now I wish I had ordered a 2nd Huernia. The plant is bigger and fuller that I expected. I will definitely buy from this company again. I hope you will carry more rare and hard to find Huernias and Stapelias in the future Thank you for a great plant and prompt service.
Packaged and delivered very well. Very pleased with with this plant.
The plant itself was healthy but was half the size of the picture and the pot! Very disappointed.
Beautiful, healthy plant arrived.
Better than expected. Great packaging. Will be looking forward to future purchases thank you.
