Pickle Plant or Delosperma echinatum is a unique-looking plant that gets its common name from its resemblance to little pickles! The leaves of the plant are plump like a pickle with white-translucent hairs. Native to South Africa, it usually spreads in mats along rocks and sandy areas. Indoors, it can be grown as a unique houseplant!

Toxicity: Pickle plants are said to be pet safe, but we always recommend keeping your plants away from your fur pals and young children.
