Description – This trending, must have collectors’ plant is an extremely low maintenance semi succulent ideal for indoors.

Brighter light conditions will increase growth rate and vibrancy of the black colour.
Location – Needs a well-drained soil in areas of great natural light, although can be tolerable of lower light areas if not over watered.
Care – Low maintenance, allowing soil to completely dry and remain dry for weeks between watering. Reduce watering in winter while the plant is dormant. Feed in spring with a slow release fertiliser. Likes smaller pots and constricted root systems. Use a succulent potting mix.
