Great triple combo, the Little Zebra Plant, Thimble Cactus, and String of Pearls Succulents (Haworthiopsis fasciata, Mammillaria gracilis fragilis, Senecio rowleyanus) are a lovely contrast of textures and growing forms to add delight and interest to pots and planters! Any sunny location lets these beauties shine!
Little Zebra Plants are wonderful spikey, upward-growing plants with green swords covered in horizontal dots and dashes of creamy white raised bumps. Like an Aloe, the main plant begins growing pups that appear from the underside that can either be left to colonize a container or removed and potted into their own pots! Like their Aloe or Yucca cousins, these plants form tall spikes of unique blooms.
Thimble Cactus are green Cactus with a fine white netting that covers each round little protrusion. Often forming multiple mounded modified stems, these can create clusters of white mesh-covered ‘thimbles’! You just may see some yellow blooms appear in the summer too!
Adorable and unique spillers, the String of Pearls are dangling jewel-like Succulents that have plump balls of soft green leaves that cascade along slender stems. Forming white blooms that look like little paintbrushes for a touch of extra interest! There’s plants look best when allowed to dangle over a container’s edge or suspended in a hanging planter.
Combine all three in one pot for a unique collection of textures, or plant them separately in their own pots to arrange on a desk or windowsill! Succulents and Cactus are very xeric plants and on the slower growing side. But don’t let slow growth give you a reason to be concerned – it simply translates to no maintenance and no worry for you. They will rarely outgrow their pots and planters.
Planting and Application:
Accent any interiorscape in the home or office with these space-saving little plants! Singly planted in fancy pots and planters, or made into Kokedama allowed you to really show them off to the max. When planted together or mixed with other Succulent and Cactus 3 packs that Nature Hills carries, you get a wonderful effect! Ideal for use in terrariums, planters, and windowsill gardens without the fuss! Hang up in macrame planters in front of a sunny (not direct sun) window, or order one of our Portrait Gardens and create wall d√©cor that goes vertical!
Create your own tabletop greenhouse, in groupings on a coffee table or on a front entry table for a unique specimen. Display on an office desk in any moderate sun location. Plant up in pretty pots on your bistro table and porch pots in the filtered sun, and these are great for patio seating areas, and as balcony d√©cor. Any area protected from cold and away from drafts in a warm sunny area is perfect for these easy-care plants!

#ProPlantTips for Care:
These low-maintenance plants need full sun to part sun to have the best growth and coloration but tend to become leggy in too little light. Indoor plants need bright, indirect light or a grow light in the home or office with just fluorescent light. True to their xeric nature, they need sandy, fast-draining soil and adequate measured moisture. So be careful while watering to always ensure you are not over-watering or under-watering.
However, don‚Äôt worry, once you know your plant, its needs will be very easy to meet! Should your plants get too leggy or need a haircut, you can punch back the plant and tuck those leaves or stems into the soil and they usually root for more plants for you to enjoy!
