Description
What Is Supplied

A stunning and striking architectural plant that suits modern garden designs, or desert and cactus styles, especially in a metallic pot. This unusual form has a bright white stripe down the centre of each leaf.

This tough succulent really thrives in neglect, and is surprisingly hardy in the UK - we have had them for 5+ years outdoors all year, and are fine if you keep them very dry. It is a striking speciment, very slow growing over here, but long lasting.

After 20 -30 years they may flower - unleashing huge 3-5M tall flower spikes in a last act of bravado, as after flowering they die. However, there are normally lots of 'pups' round the side by then,. which imemdiately take it's place.

Grow in a very free draining mix with plenty of sand or gravel (up to 50% mix with compost). Once potted they should be fine for 5-10 years....

Warning - the leaves have very spiky tips, and some smaller ones on leaf margins. Handle with care. Avoid places where chidlren or pets may brush against them.
