Its name 'albissima' comes from the Latin word "albi" (white), so called because of its white leaves. It presents at the base a small caudex, from which numerous erect stems arise; they are totally covered by small papery leaves, overlapping each other. During the flowering period it blooms, on the tips of the stems, with small greenish-white scented flowers.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light all year around, avoiding direct sun rays especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it survives even in temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry.

Water moderately only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once every two weeks in spring and summer, once every two months in autumn and suspend it completely in winter.

A draining soil is an optimal solution, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
