Details

Starfish Succulents are a favorite in our greenhouse and we are so excited to have this Huernia Zebrina available now.

Although it looks like a cactus this is actually a member of the milkweed family and native to the deserts of Africa. They prefer warmer drier climates. Let them dry between waterings. Typically blooms from the months of June - September.  Loves warmer and dryer temperatures.  

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
  • Marie Terracotta Planter - 4.5" Terracotta planter with matching saucer for drainage. 

If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.

It's ok

This plant arrived alive but because of pieces that are broken in the center it's not aesthetically pleasing. It's also red which if I'm not mistaken means too much direct light.
