Who am I: Haworthia limifolia. Originally from Africa, this guy often sports stripy leaves and does well in shade. They’re also perfect for windowsills.
What am I: Sansevieria. This guy is a cousin to the more commonly known mother in law’s tongue. They’re also particularly good air purifiers making them great bedroom plants.
What am I: Sedum morganianum – also known as Donkey’s Tail. This Mexican specimen can go without water for weeks at a time and looks great in a hanging basket.
What am I: Graptoveria, or “Fred Ives”. This plant often sports silvery pink leaves making them quite the highlight (literally) in any succulent collection. They also grow relatively easily from cuttings so you cultivate a whole crop.
What am I: Fenestraria rhopalophylla – although understandably, it’s often called Baby Toes colloquially. Each leaf has a little ‘window’ at the end which allows light in and grows best in super sandy soil.
What am I: Senecio serpens, or sometimes called Dwarf Chalk Sticks. Because this plant hails for the arid lands of South Africa, it grows well when cultivated in Australia and provides great ground cover.
What am I: Euphorbia lactea crest. This little guy is often called “Rainbow Crest” due to the pinkish tips it gets on its outer leaves. Just be sure you don’t accidentally ingest it – all parts of the plant are poisonous when eaten!
What am I: Trichocereus peruvianus crest. Although you’ll sometimes heard it referred to as “San Pedro Cactus” or “San Pedro Brain”. They’re quick growing and can handle cold climates.
What am I: Aeonium tabuliforme. A flat, saucer-like plant that’s native to the Canary Islands, this grows understandably well on long, vertical surfaces in temperate regions.
