Leuchtenbergia principis

This is a monospecific species, meaning it is the only species to its genus. If given full sun their foliage can change to a rainbow of colors! They form a trunk-like caudex as they age, making them look like little trees! A true ARIUM FAVORITE.


These will do best if given a strong light if not full sun. Water in when the soil is completely dry in the spring and summer which may roughly be 12-14 days. Let it stay on the drier side in the winter preferably in a cool place. When repotting, use a coarse cacti medium.
