Despite its spiky look Pickle Plant is covered with soft spine-like white hairs. It branches freely and grows up to 40cm tall. Flowers appear in spring and last for the whole summer. The flowers open when the sun shines and will stay close during a grey rainy day.

PICKLE PLANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
– Soil: Pickle plants prefer very free drawing cactus compost. I use 2 parts compost and 1 part sand. Other mixes will work well as this plant is not demanding, but the aim is for the medium to drain well and be well aerated.
– Sun Exposure: Pickle plants love sun and will grow bushy when placed into a position with plenty of sunlight. Elongated dark green stems often are results of insufficient sun exposure.
– Watering: Overwatering is the worst offender. Water generously in summer but allow the soil to become completely dry in between waterings. Reduce watering to once every 2 months during winter.
– Hardiness: Pickle plants are one of the hardiest succulents and can withstand frosts up to -10C when kept completely dry.
