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 or even full indoor sun. They will not do well in lower light conditions! Water in when the soil is completely dry in the spring and summer which may roughly be 12 weeks. Let it stay on the drier side in the winter preferably in a cool place. When repotting, use a coarse cacti soil.
