Description

Called Ghost Plant thanks to its pale, opalescent grey-white leaf colour with hints of pink or lavender, this Mexican native has also been commonly known as Mother of Pearl. A small, evergreen succulent forming 10cm wide rosettes out of fleshy, pointed, flat leaves, it has pendent stems which are able to cascade over the edge of containers, making it ideal in hanging baskets or spilling over walls. It also makes a beautiful groundcover featuring delicate sprays of star-shaped yellow flowers. Growing around 60cm tall and 90cm wide, with a rosette trail of up to a metre, it is an excellent potplant but not suitable for indoors due to the trailing habit.

Preferring full sun where it achieves its best colouring, its foliage can change colour, becoming a blue-grey in part shade, or pinkish yellow in hot, dry conditions. Minimal watering is required but grow in sandy, well-draining soil.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.

PACKING

All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.

GENERAL INFOMRATION

Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
