'Pickle Plant'

Delosperma echinatum

Native to South Africa where it can be found growing at high altitudes, the Delosperma echinatum is a great windowsill addition requiring minimal care.

In the summer months, the little gherkin shaped leaves are offset with small bright yellow flowers.

Why Hutch selects me

This is one of two Pickle Plants native to South Africa (see also the Kleinia Stapeliformis). Whilst they look nothing alike, the care requirements are somewhat similar, both being drought tolerant sun worshippers.

How to look after me

Watering: When the soil has dried thoroughly -  approximately once a week in the height of summer and once every 4-6 weeks in winter; do not mist

Light: Bright light with some direct sun is key

Why I'm unique

We work hard to provide a clear photograph and description of your chosen plant. However, all plants are unique and, whilst the pot size remains the same, there is always variation in size and shape from one plant to the next.
