This has to be one of the coolest succulents I’ve ever seen. It has a flower that resembles a lifesaver ring or yes, the lifesaver candy. The plant is very easy to grow and requires little care. It seems to bloom more with the less care given. Water is only needed once in a while and very little then.
Don’t worry about those spines, they are harmless. Just use a loose well draining soil and enjoy the cool blooms.
