This plant is a actually a cactus, but it must have adapted to its environment by now because it hardly fits into what we normally think of as a cactus - it has luscious green leaves. The leaves are fleshy, thick and feels smooth like plastic. Very few cactus have leaves. The beautiful flowers look like budding roses.
Plant grows shrubby after pruning. It is a tough plant, just avoid over watering it. It loves to be in the sunlight, but it does not fuss being in partial shade. Unlike normal cactus, do not allow the medium to dry out. If this plant is short of water, you can see its leaves turning yellow.This plant is a survivor, very tough plant.
Unlike many other cactus this one can be grown in normal potting soil. Protect from frost. Suitable for containers.
