    In its native Africa, this stately succulent will form a sizeable clump made up rosettes of slender green leaves, each with a short, toothed edge. When grown as a house plant, it stays smaller, but no less impressive - and in the right conditions, each rosette may also produce a bottle brush-like 'poker' of cylindrical red flowers. It's a stylish and architectural gem. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a standard nursery plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water moderately when growing, and sparingly when dormant through the winter months. Feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser 2-3 times during the growing season.
  • Harmful if eaten
