Desert Rose is a unique and striking little succulent, with a woody, bulbous base and thicker, waxy leaves. They grow up to 2-5ft tall- impressive for such a small plant! Furthermore, they produce lovely blooms that range in colour from pink to red- these give them their name. Undoubtedly, this succulent will find its place in your home and in your heart.
Their care is rather easy. They enjoy bright, but indirect light. They do not need a lot of water- the fat, bulbous base stores it. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. They enjoy warm temperatures, so one must avoid placing these plants near cold drafts or air conditioners. Use a cacti and succulent planting soil- something light, fast-draining, and loose, even sandy.
