DESCRIPTION

Foliage: 

If you've seen Shrek, this plant basically looks like his ears, hence the name. Clusters of long, tubular succulent leaves lead to a almost suction-cup like tip with red edges. 

Size: 

A slower grower overall, but over many years, it could reach 2 - 3ft. Oh. My. God.

 

CARE

Light: 

Bright light is best for these little ears to thrive. East, West and South facing windows are ideal. In shaded areas, the plant will keep a deeper shade of green. While in brighter light, the colour will lighten to a bright green and the red edging will be more pronounced.

Water: 

These succulents are easy care, and require very minimal watering. Give it a good, thorough water and then allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings.

Soil: 

A well-draining cactus soil is ideal for Coral Jade. Mixing in added perlite, coarse sand or bark mulch for quick drainage is an added bonus. 

 

TOXICITY

Humans: Toxic. 

Pets: Toxic. Keep away from curious critters*
