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.

  2. Awesome! Review by Di
    How do you rate this product?

    Received this plant about 4 weeks ago. Upon unwrapping, there were 2 little blooms on them but they were towards the end of their bloom life. Can't wait to watch this plant and see it when it blooms again! Heard it thrives on neglect which works great for me as my schedule is nuts. I have it on a windowsill where sunlight comes thru daily but wondering if I should move to outdoors until it gets colder here in little plant! (Posted on 10/4/2017)

  3. Unique Succulent❗️ Review by Jo
    How do you rate this product?

    I absolutely love this plant. I've had it for roughly 3months now and it's been a joy to watch it grow and transform right in front of my eyes! It came to me about 2.5 inch plant and it grew rapidly to be 4inches currently. It's easy to care for , I found it does well if treated like a succulent. Some eastern direct sun, let fully dry inbetween and take care not to overwater ! My plant has begun to sprout its first flowers this month (4 months after purchasing). One bloom is fully open while 4 others are still in the early stages of blooming. I only deduct 1star because this plant is fragile! One tiny bump and off falls a whole stem!!! Other than that, this is a very unique exotic Succulent worth a try . Especially if you want to try something different and your tired of the same old ho-hum. (Posted on 9/20/2017)

    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)

  5. 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)

    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)

  8. 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)
