A Life Saver

I am fascinated by unusual plants.

Sometimes I buy them because I have doubts that they are real…

like Sea Monkeys.

Well here is one that has proved itself to be real.

This Life Saver plant has finally made a bloom.

For two years it has done nothing but sling little pieces of itself out of the pot like a self-purging cloner.

Finally it has a bloom.

The bloom looks just like the pictures.

Yes.   It does look like there is a life saver candy in the middle.

Huernia zebrina, I believe!
