cacti + succulents
this flowering plant is native to South Africa and actually in the asparagaceae family. In the spring, big vanilla-smelling flowers will bloom, with upwards of 10 blooms per spike 😍 Frizzle Sizzle does best in full sun and with the chance for the soil to dry out between waterings.
variegated string of pearls 🙌 these beauties thrive with lots of bright light reaching the base of the stems, good drainage, and a chance to dry out mostly between each watering. And because their roots are pretty shallow and delicate, slow and gentle watering is best.
Jade plants are a type of succulent in the genus Crassula. Like cacti, they’re very easy to care for as long as they get several hours of bright light every day. But they appreciate a little more water than cacti do. Be sure to let their soil get dry – but not totally dry – before giving them a thorough watering.
There's a few key differences between the two. Cacti have spines, which are actually modified leaves, and they come from areoles (a structure all cacti have). Euphorbias most often have thorns, usually in pairs, which are modified stems. Euphorbias also do not have areoles. Another difference is that euphorbias contain a toxic sap called "latex". If you cut open a succulent and see white sap, it is most likely a euphorbia.
Those velvety soft leaves are what make the 'tomentosa' one of our favorite kalanchoes and why it gets a nickname like the 'panda plant'. Like other succulent plants, this one is looking for bright to bright indirect light and a chance for the soil to dry out between waterings.
We love the aeonium for its almost perfectly symmetrical rosette arrangement. Like other succulents, bright light is key, but unlike others, these plants prefer their soil to be more consistently moist. Only allow the top half of the soil to dry between waterings. 🌿
