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

Bloomtime: Winter

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.

Candle Plant

Arrived a little wilted and there was more soil out of the pot than in. Hopefully, since repotting, it will thrive. Very unique looking for a succulent.. I will be ordering from Succy Crafts again. Thanks

Very nice

Pretty cool little plant, it was a bit wilted when it arrived. After repotting and watering it perked up but it seems ti be struggling a little bit. Fingers crossed it bounces back!

Weird candles sprouting leaves.

The two plants I received were very dry and partially wilted. But potting them up and some water revived all but two of the lower leaves which I removed. Looking good now.

I can see how they used this plant to make the string of dolphins. I just can’t wait to see how it grows!
