Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

From South Africa comes this cute little succulent, Delosperma echinatum or the Pickle Plant, named after its fat, pickle-like leaves which are smothered in soft, glistening white hairs. With trailing foliage, it makes a pretty plant for tumbling over a decorative container, enjoying bright light and only moderate watering. Small, yellow, daisy-like flowers are occasionally produced in the right conditions. Height and Spread: 30cm (12in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow full light with some shelter from the hottest sun. An average temperature of 10- 23C (50-75F) is ideal. This succulent only requires light watering; allow all of the soil to dry out between waterings. Fertilise every 2 months during the growing season with a cactus and succulent feed. In winter, while the plant is dormant, gradually reduce watering and allow the compost to remain dry.
