For sale by Paul

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

This is a small oval shaped green-glazed ceramic bowl containing a cactus and succulent plant. Bowl size is 9cm x 6.5cm wide and 5cm high. It contains a lovely Mexican cactus (Echinocereus pectinatus), with short pink-tinged spines, and a succulent plant (Stapelia gettleffii) from South Africa which produces an unusual reddish-pink starfish-shaped flower. Both plants are easy to care for. Best kept in a south facing window sill, or even better, in a conservatory.

Grower Notes

The plants will need regular watering during the spring and summer...a good soaking each watering and then leave until the soil is dry, then water again. So maybe once a fortnight but this can vary depending on the weather. Ease off the water a bit during the winter months.
