Lifesaver Cactus

Huernia insigniflora, H. confusa

The 1" blooms of this trailing succulent appear to have a grape lifesaver stuck perfectly in the center of the deep burgundy and tan star shaped blooms. We ship Lifesaver Cactus as carefully as we can, but sometimes pieces break off anyway. Each one will easily re-root if gently pressed into the soil. Just let them dry 2-3 days, and put broken end down, water then, and sparingly after that..
