Cotyledon orbiculata var oblonga
Only 2 left in stock
Current batch looks like both pics. Some have distorted leaves, this is normal for these, most leaves come out long and straight, and a few come out wonky.
Long skinny leaves tipped with bright red. Likes a little more water and protection from hot sun than most succulents. Grows tall stems and a few branches to form a graceful little shrub.
Use a very well draining soil mix. Store bought cactus and succulent mix often retains too much water. You can add gritty materials like pumice, lava rock, or perlite to loosen it up and improve drainage. Your mix should be at least half gritty ingredients. Use a pot with drain holes so the soil can dry out.
Soak your plants thoroughly, then let them dry out completely before watering again. Frequency will depend on your climate. Check for dryness by sticking your finger into the top of the soil, or looking into the drain holes at the bottom of the pot.
Bare Root Shipping
Most of our plants ship bare root to save on shipping cost. This means the plant will not include a pot or soil. Some plants are shipped in the pot to avoid damage.
