Deuterocohnia brevifolia

This miniature succulent is a member of the bromeliad family and is a true survivor able to grow over rocks and cliff faces. Very slow growing this species forms an impenetrable matt and will survive anywhere. Established plants can live months without water.

Position - any sunny or partially shaded position in any soil or climate, indoors only in sunny positions otherwise they will lose their nice shape. Flowering will only occur in good light. Will take frosts and extreme heat.

Watering - can be watered all year round and grow fastest in the warmer months, plants will survive without water for very ling periods and remain compact when dry.

Feeding - 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less fertiliser, the better the shape of the plant. Fertilisers high in nitrogen can produce larger plants with less colour.

Repotting - can be left to overgrow their pots, or repotted in the warmer months in almost any well drained potting mix.

Dudleya

Dudleya is a family of plants closely related to Echerias. Dudleya grow on woody stems and reproduce by producing branches. They are relatively slow growing and best suited for pots.

Position - full sun or shade. Great in gardens in well-drained soil, best under cover. Indoors only in sunny positions otherwise they will lose their nice shape and colour.

Watering - can be watered all year round and grow fastest in the warmer months, plants will survive without water for short periods.

Feeding - 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less fertiliser the more intense the colour, tighter the foliage and more compact the plant become.

Repotting - can be left to overgrow their pots, sometimes with dramatic effects, or repotted at any time of the year in almost any well drained potting mix.

Dyckia marnier-lapostollei 'Silver Star'

Amazing rare, very slow growing species or bromeliad with very stiff recurved silver leaves growing 15 to 25cm across. This species is prized by collectors, as unlike most bromeliad plants they do not die after flowering.

Position - partial shade under cover in pots or baskets. Indoors only in sunny positions otherwise they will loose their nice shape and colour. Flowering will only occur in good light. Will not take frosts or extreme heat.

Watering - can be watered all year round and grow fastest in the warmer months. Plants will survive without water for very long periods and remain compact when dry.

Feeding - 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less fertiliser, the better the shape of the plant. Fertilisers high in nitrogen can produce larger plants with less colour.

Repotting - can be left to overgrow their pots, or repotted in the warmer months in almost any well drained potting mix.
