|Succulent seedlings are so cute! |
Attractive succulent species from southern Africa, where it is common in savannah areas with summer rainfall, preferring rocky slopes. Its narrow fleshy leaves grow in a basket shape, curving upward to a height up to 30". Flowering stems rise higher, up to 5 ft, with dense racemes of orange-red tubular flowers. Long-lived where happy, and suitable for container culture.
||Germinate at room temperature with exposure to light. Maintain seedlings in their pots/trays until large enough to be handled (as long as a year).
