Desert Rose

About Me

Native to the Arabian Peninsula! I thrive in consistently warmer temperatures, that being said I am very sensitive to cold and frosty conditions. So please keep me in a nice warm spot indoors during the fall and winter months. My unique physique is my most notable feature, as I am one of the few succulents that grow a tree-like trunk.
