1. String of Pearls

Small, white flowers that smell like cinnamon.

Light shade.

Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Reduce watering to a minimum in the winter.

Well-drained soil.

 Can be toxic to humans and animals.

2. Zebra Haworthia 

Haworthia Fasciata 'Zebra Haworthia" is one of the most popular Haworthia species. Its leaves are thin, and dark green with horizontal white ridges that resemble zebra striping.

 Zebra Haworthia is often grown as an indoor plant because of its attractive appearance and low maintenance. It produces offsets freely, and the offsets can be propagated easily.

 The Zebra Plant flowers are small tubular white or pink flowers growing from a very thin kind of stem. It rarely blooms though and the flowers only last for a few days.

Bright light, but not direct sunlight.

Use a cactus mix or very fast-draining potting soil mixed with sand.

Water only when soil feels dry to the touch and then drain completely. Never let the plant sit in water.

3. Haworthia Batesiana

Haworthia Batesiana has miniature rosettes with translucent bright green leaves marked with a net of deeper green. These succulent leaves have smooth margins and a terminal white spine. Rosettes offset freely to form dense clumps.

Their shape and coloration make them perfect for succulent arrangements and make perfect gifts in a pot for the home or office desk.

Bright light, but not direct sunlight.

Use a cactus mix or very fast-draining potting soil mixed with sand.

4. Echeveria Blue Fairy

The lovely Echeveria Blue Fairy or Blue Bird is one of best selling succulents, and with good reason. This rosette has blue-green foliage, and sometimes the pointed tips have a reddish color.

Blue Bird loves bright light, produces offsets randomly for new plants, and has these wonderful blooms with colorful flowers. The blooms can get up to 8 inches long.

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

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.

 Average summer temperatures from 65ºF/18ºC to 70ºF/21ºC are ideal. In winter, it can survive temperatures as low as 50ºF/10ºC.

Feed once with a weak fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season (Spring or Summer).

 You can propagate Echeveria 'Blue Fairy' by seeds, leaf cuttings or offsets.

5. Tillandsia Streptophylla

 Tillandsia Streptophylla, or Shirley Temple or the Queen of Air Plants is a flowering plant species in the genus Tillandsia. Tillandsia Streptophylla leaves have pastel green-colored, and curly, irregular shape. The drier the conditions are, the more curly this plant will be, which is not an issue as this plant can tolerate arid conditions.

When blooming, It has a lovely pink inflorescence with many bracts. It is xeric, and prefer more sun and less frequent waterings than many air plant varieties. 

Bright indirect or filtered sunlight.

No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chips can be used instead of soil.

Spray or dunk once a week. Twice or three times a week with especially dry area. Make sure to dry it and drain the excess water trapped between the leaves.
