RARE! "Candle Plant" also known as "Hot Dog Cactus" and "Sausage Plant" is one of those weird succulents that you learn to love. It grows tall up to 2 feet with bushy green foliage at the very top. Yes, a very weird one indeed BUT will add interest to any succulent arrangement or garden.
ZONE: 9, 10, 11
Native to: South Africa
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Bloom Color: white
Recommended light conditions: filtered light or part shade /
Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.
