Pickle Plant Kleinia Stapeliiformis

  • Kleinia Stapeliiformis, also called Pickle Plant, or Candle Stick Plant, is an interesting succulent with tiny scale leaves and pencil-like cylindrical stems. The stems are brittle and succulent, with soft spines along the sides.

    It can grow up to 10 inches long and 0.8 inches thick. White babies grow freely from the stem underground, and gain their dark green and silver color when exposed to sunlight.

    Kleinia Stapeliiformis produces large red or deep orange flowers.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root. The 2-inch plant is one piece, the 4-inch plant is 3 pieces.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** 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.

I was ordering a couple of wishlist plants when I saw these funky pickles. It's nothing like other plants I have or wanted, but it just called out to me. I'm so glad I snagged these funky little dudes! They're so much fun and visually different/striking. I didn't even know I wanted one but now I love my two little pickles. They shipped extremely well and were wonderfully rooted. Definitely a great addition to my collection. Thank you!
