This fascinating succulent with spiky leaves native to South Africa make a fantastic addition to any dish garden.
Your succulent thrives in plenty of direct sunlight to match the hot sun in their native environment, the desert. If their location is partially shaded, it should get at least 6 hours of sun a day.
The soil should be allowed to dry between waterings to match the dry conditions of the desert. Your succulent stores water inside its leaves, so it does not need as much watering as a tropical plant. When watering, water thoroughly. Overwatering is a common way of killing succulents and cacti.
