Plastic
Additional information
Grown indoors and it's a succulent that will retain water well within the leaves, just like the cactus plant. The leaves are a thick oval shaped type which are a shiny dark green and possibly red colored outer edge's. They can produce white or pink flowers in the right conditions, once they have matured. The most important aspect of displaying this shrub is plenty of sunlight, close to a window. Watering: It's best to allow the soil to become dry between each watering which will depend on the time of year, how much humidity and amount of sunlight it's getting. Allowing too much water to sit at the bottom of the pot with the roots will cause them to rot (avoid this).
