 Haworthia Cooperi is a slowly growing, low succulent plant. It grow in clumps of small rosettes of tiny, fleshy, light green leaves, up to 2 inches (5 cm) long.

When flowering in spring to summer, it bears a peduncle simple inflorescence (up to 12 inches (30 cm) long) of whitish flowers.

Bright, indirect light, partial shade.

Porous, well-drained potting mix with sand, pumice or decomposed granite.

Water only when soil is dry to the touch. Let drain completely after each watering.

Offsets (New plants are freely produced basally between the leaves)

2. Kalanchoe Panda

Kalanchoe Tomentosa, often called Panda Plant, is a succulent originated from Madagascar. Similar to its cousin, Kalanchoe Chocolate Soldier, Panda Plant has soft fuzzy long oval shaped leaves with deep brown margin. Its leaves are an attractive shade of white silvery green.

In nature, Panda Plant can grow up to several feet, but if grown indoors it typically only reaches up to 2 feet in height.

In spring and summer, it produces white fuzzy, bell-shaped flowers.

Porous soil with adequate drainage.

The Cotyledon Pendens grows well in Full Sun to Partial Shade. If grown indoors, put it in a spot with bright light and ample airflow.

Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch then let drain completely.

Can be mildly toxic to pets and humans

3. Echeveria Compressicaulis

Echeveria compressicaulis is a species from Venezuela. A species with thick, fleshy leaves. It takes on very deep-red colours under strong light. Rather than grow low like most Echeveria, this one will grow upwards and offset from the stem

When it flowers you can expect it to produce bell-shaped orange flowers.

Make sure the soil is moist at all times during the spring and summer months.

It thrives best in full sun to light shade. In order to develop their foliage color, you should place Echeveria Compressicaulis somewhere is a warm, sunny with well-drained soil. In the indoor and east or west-facing window where it can receive four to six hours of sunlight is ideal.

Water when soil is dry to the touch, which is approximately every 7 - 10 days. Avoid water it daily. Water them more in spring and summer and less in winter, and it’s better to underwater them than overwater them.

Generally non-toxic to humans and animals.

4. Echeveria Glory

Echeveria Glory is an evergreen rosette succulent with chubby pastel green leaves and stiff red tips. This plant is a hybrid succulent, bred from Echeveria Purpusorum.

Echeveria Glory grows small offsets that pack neatly together, forming little clumps around the mother plant.

Echeveria Glory, like other Echeveria succulents, is polycarpic. The rosettes do not die after blooming and this plant may flower many times during its lifetime.

In spring and summer, Echeveria Glory blooms clusters of yellow-coral tubular flowers, which attract bees and butterflies.
