Lifesaver Cactus

Sale priceRs. 262.00


The flowers of Huernia zebrina look like they come right out of a fantasy movie: a corolla consisting of zebra-striped red and cream-colored petals with a raised, glossy, rubber-like burgundy ring in the center called annulus. This gave the houseplant its common name, lifesaver plant or lifebuoy plant.

Huernia zebrina is a small perennial succulent that grows in a creeping pattern. You might think that a plant that stunning is difficult to grow but it’s not, it is actually low maintenance, as long as it’s in a pot with the right potting soil and excellent drainage, and watered correctly.

Its flowers can have a slightly foul odour, hence its other name, the Carrion Flower. Some tribes in Africa are known to eat it when other food is hard to find.
