We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water. Check to see if the plant should be watered at that time of the year you purchase. Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what they will look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Larryleachia cactiforme


Larryleachia are from South Africa and Namibia. Flowers are sessile, fleshy and very variable in colour. The flowers I have seen are reddish, purple or maroon, and glabrous. Larryleachia cactiforme is a small perennial stem succulent mostly solitary (or slowly clumping). Globular to elongate, green or light green or blue-green 5-30 cm high, 20-60 mm wide, unbranched or sparsely branched short-cylindric, and tessellate with roughly pentangular, flat or depressed tubercles closely set together; latex colorless. Leaves: Persistent, reduced to scales, in spirals or verticillate, sessile (and sunken), strongly adscending, 0.05-0.1 cm long. Roots: Fibrous. Flowers: Appear (usually) close to apex of stems in extra-axillary inflorescences 1 to 3 together on a tubercle apex, each about 6 to 10mm, in diameter, simple, sessile, fleshy, abaxially whitish cream, green, yellow to dull pinkish uniformly coloured or maculate with reddish, purple or maroon, adaxially white, cream, green or yellow, maculate, glabrous. Flowers open synchronously in summer.
