A beautiful light-green leafed plant with red serrated edges and outgrowing plantlets from its stems, this is as good as an ornamental as an Ayurvedic medicinal plant harvested for its leaves. A succulent perennial, it prefers a drier, well-draining soil environment as it is prone to root rot. Needs full sun and will grow to a low bush at maturity. Container friendly. Well suited to Mumbai's conditions if protected from direct monsoon rains and flooding/overwatering. Works well as a houseplant in a sunny spot. Pest resistant. Grows easily and will start producing harvestable leaves (aka 'leaves of life") immediately and throughout its life.
*Can be grown alongside other plants but a separate container is recommended.
**Sold in a small plastic container for transplantation to a bigger container/in-ground for better growth.
***All our plants are organically grown without the use of any chemical fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides.
