Plant Care & Growth*:
Pickle Plant (Delosperma echinatum): A unique plant with spiny-looking leaves covered with tiny white-translucent hairs. It is native to South Africa and usually spreads as a mat in rocky habitats. Its narrow stems can grow up to 18.0" long with a prostrate growth habit. It blooms with tiny, pale yellow flowers.
Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures, they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny windowsill or under a grow light. They need ample sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
