Description:

It is a very slow growing caudiciform succulent. It can reach the height of 1.2 meters, depending on the climate conditions. It produces long thorny branches with narrow dark green leaves. Its stunning star-shaped flowers are white to pink in color with a purple central streak. P. succulentum is able to grow at sub-zero temperatures in winter, if the soil is dry. In its caudex it stores water to survive during periods of drought. In the dormant period, from January to May, it loses its leaves.

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 12 °C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered and ventilated locations during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. Once a week in spring and summer and once a month during autumn and winter.

A well-draining and porous soil is an optimal solution, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice or lapilli.

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