Life Saver Plant (Huernia zebrina)
The amazing 5-pointed, yellow, star-shaped flowers are banded in coppery brown with a dark red lifesaver rim making it appropriately named Life Saver Plant. This low-growing succulent has 4-sided stems with soft teeth at the edges and the flowers emerge intermittently. Life Saver Plant is easy-to-grow; it loves full sun and dryness between waterings. It’s perfect for a sunny windowsill and will tolerate neglectful watering.

  1. An awesome plant! Review by Barb
    How do you rate this product?

    I love this lifesaver plant that I received today. I was so pleasantly surprised when I unwrapped it and saw a bloom on it. It looks exactly like a lifesaver! The packaging was excellent with no damage to the plant!
    I'm looking forward to watching this plant grow! (Posted on 8/26/2017)

  2. Very interesting plant Review by Jess
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought one of these plants a couple of years ago. It thrives on neglect. I live in Texas and put it outside in a sunny spot all summer. The blooms are so unique and everyone is perfect. They spread and are easily propagated. All you have to do is break off a segment and lay it on top of dirt and it will root. I use cacti soil and use Miracle Grow Cacti fertilizer. Put it in a sunny window in the Winter and it will be fine. It is well worth the price. (Posted on 5/18/2016)

    How do you rate this product?

    I purchased this plant 2 weeks ago. Within a week I noticed two little buds. I was amazed when I came home today and saw 2 beautiful blooms opened. I posted the picture to my facebook page and my friends could not believe the beauty of this plant. So pleased with my purchase! (Posted on 8/20/2015)

  5. very unique plant...but amazing Review by Kathy
    How do you rate this product?

    I purchased this plant around 3 years ago. I was getting impatient because it wasn't blooming for me, but the plant was growing great. Then this Spring, I noticed something on the end of one of the stems. Lo and behold, I had 2 blossoms! They are very different looking indeed, somewhat waxy and hard. I had to take pictures and show all my friends, and they were all amazed because none of them had ever seen a plant like this. This is truly a unique plant. It's been around 2 weeks since the first blooms, and I still have blooms and new buds coming on other stems. I love this plant!! (Posted on 6/4/2015)
