 Aeonium Kiwi - This listing is for a Aeonium Kiwi in a 2 inch or 4 inch size. Some have branches with cute little babies. They vary in color depending on their location in our greenhouse. Some will be more yellow, some greener.

 Aeonium Percarneum (Aeonium "Kiwi") is a drought tolerant succulent with branches of variegated, pointed leaves. Its leaves can have up to 4 colors when grown in ideal condition: green, yellow, white, and red. It grows up to 8 inches and produces bell-shaped flowers in winter. It goes dormant in the summer and grows best in cool shade/ winter time.

 Please be aware that Aeonium bruises easily, so the plant may have some little brown marks on their leaves when they arrive due to the transit. It's completely normal and will no absolutely no harm to the health of the plant.

 Full Sun, Partial Sun.

 Porous and well-drained sandy soil.

 In winter, 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 summer when the plant goes dormant.

 You can propagate Aeonium Kiwi from leaf cuttings taken when the plant is in its active period.

 Generally non-toxic to humans and animals

 

2. Haworthia Cymbiformis Var. Obtusa

 Haworthia Cymbiformis Var. Obtusa is one of the innumerable morphological forms of the very variable Haworthia cymbiformis characterized by denser rosettes up to 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter, forming round clumps.

 You can propagate Crassula Brevifolia by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. The easiest way is to propagate from a single leaf: put the leaf in a succulent or cacti mix, then cover until it sprouts.

 

4. Haworthia Coarctata

 Haworthia Coarctata is one of the most striking Haworthia with narrow pointy leaves marked with bumpy, raised white spotty bands.

 The tightly packed leaves are arranged in a spiral pattern, forming columnar rosettes up to 8 inches tall. Haworthia Coarctata produces offsets freely to form a mat.

 In spring, the mature rosettes produce white flowers on thin, long stems.

 Bright light, but not direct sunlight.

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

 Water deeply when soil is dry and let water drain out completely.

 

5. Tillandsia Juncea

 Tillandsia Juncea, native to American Southern states, Latin America and Antilles, is a drought tolerant and easy to grow air plant. It has long dark grassy-green needle-like leaves and a brown base. Juncea plants sometimes might have a brick red hue as well.

 Bright indirect sunlight.

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

 Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Tillandsia Juncea will also benefit from a soaking bath every week. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent root.
