  • Delosperma echinatum, also known as the 'Pickle Plant', is a unique and attractive succulent plant native to South Africa. It is a small, evergreen shrub with thin wiry stems that hold pairs of barrel-shaped leaves. The leaves are light green and covered in short, white, bristly hairs, which give them a spiny appearance. However, the hairs are actually soft and harmless.

    The Pickle Plant is a drought-tolerant plant and easy to care for, which makes it a good choice for gardeners in a variety of climates.

    In spring, the Pickle Plant produces masses of small, daisy-like flowers in shades of white, yellow, or pink. The flowers are typically about an inch in diameter and have five petals

    Plants may be shipped bare root.
  • It prefers full sun to light shade.

     Use a sharp well draining soil, and allow all excess water to run off every time you water.

      Water it once or twice a week during the growing season (spring and summer) and reduce watering during the winter. 

     This plant is non-toxic and pet-friendly.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** 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.
