Kumara (Aloe) Plicatilis (Fan Aloe)
Native Range: Kumara Plicatilis is native to the Western Cape of South Africa.
Maximum Growth Height & Width: This succulent typically reaches a height of 6 to 10 feet and has a width of 4 to 6 feet.
Soil: Well-draining soil is crucial for Aloe Plicatilis. A mix of cactus potting soil or succulent mix with perlite works well.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. In the growing season (spring and summer), water sparingly, and reduce watering during the dormant period (fall and winter).
Sunlight: Place the Fan Aloe in a location with plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. It can tolerate some direct sun, but too much can cause sunburn.
Graptoveria Lovely Rose
Native Range: Graptoveria Lovely Rose is a hybrid succulent and doesn't have a specific native range.
Maximum Growth Height & Width: Typically, Graptoveria Lovely Rose grows to a height of 4 to 6 inches and spreads to a width of 6 to 8 inches.
Soil: Use a well-draining succulent or cactus mix.
Water: Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Be cautious not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.
Sunlight: Place in a location with bright, indirect sunlight or partial sun. Protect from intense midday sun in hotter climates.
Curio Rowleyanus String of Pearls Variegated
Native Range: Curio Rowleyanus, commonly known as String of Pearls, is native to South Africa.
Maximum Growth Height & Width: This plant typically cascades and can grow up to 3 feet in length.
Soil: A well-draining succulent mix is essential.
Water: Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. String of Pearls is drought-tolerant and prefers to be underwatered rather than overwatered.
Sunlight: Place in bright, indirect sunlight. Too much direct sun can scorch the delicate pearls.
