  • Plectranthus neochilus (Lobster Flower) is a perennial ground cover with highly fragrant, partially scalloped, ovate leaves.

    Flowers are purple blue inflorescent spikes. Overall the plant almost resembles a succulent lavender bush, with oversized flowers.It flowers like crasy in Spring thru Fall, creating a soft haze of long-lasting attractive purpley-blue 3” spikelets loved by bees. Grows quickly to 12” tall and 3’ wide.

    It’s a smart choice for carefree edging in sun or shade and dry difficult spots. Fills the air with a heady ganja scent when watered. Be sure to give it decent drainage and compost regularly. Protect under 32°.

    Plants may be shipped bare root.
  • Full sun but Light shade in the hottest months of summer. Full shade is not recommended to prevent etiolation and rot.

    Porous and well-drained potting mix. Avoid keeping the soil wet, especially in winter.

    Water thoroughly only when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Aloinopsis malherbei goes dormant in the summer so do not overwater during this period.

    Feed once with a balanced fertilizer diluted to 50% of the recommended strendth during the growing season (fall and spring).
  • Hardiness: USDA Hardiness Zone 10a to 11b: from 25 °F (−3.9 °C) to 50 °F (10 °C).
  • * We use 3.5 inch wide clay pots for 4" plant + clay pot option.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Lobster Flower for the win

So cute, I love this plant and it has already grown so much. It actually does smell ganjy too, which I find hilarious. Very happy with this purchase, I can't wait until it flowers
