Leopard print is SO HOT right now! We love this big bold succulent for its spotty-stripy markings and its large size. Just like a leopard it needs a warm sunny spot, 15C or above, so for southern and inland gardens you might have to make room for this one indoors.
DESCRIPTION: Easy care large succulent with large oval flat grey-green leaves marked with maroon-red. The leaves are arranged in an upright rosette. Happy mature plants will grow a flower spike with smaller leaves along it and tiny flowers. USES: Ornamental plant ideal in well lit areas Striking landscaping plant for waterwise gardens in frost-free areas. PLANTING: Plant in free draining or even rocky soil in pots or out in the garden, taking care to keep the crown above the soil. Suited to full sun where it will develop more colour. Protect plants from single-digit temperatures. CARE: Like most succulents, require little water. Fortnightly watering during the warmer months will keep plants looking lush; reduce water in winter so the soil almost dries out. Fertilise during spring with an organic liquid feed mixed at half rate. If potted plants become crowded as pups develop, remove young plants and share with neighbours or re-pot. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 90cm H x 60cm W. YOUR PLANTS: Supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
