The Grape Jelly Dyckia seems content to just sit and look pretty (it actually stands out in the crowd). I haven’t had it quite a month, but so far the little care instructions given by the seller have proved to be exactly what the plant wants—for her soil to dry out 100% before being given water, nothing in the way of humidity and plenty of sunlight. Her color is a vibrant deep green with iridescent purple highlights. It’s a good thing that she’s low maintenance though, because one of her nicknames is “saw blade plant” for a good reason. Spikes up and down the sides of every leaf and they hurt! Get long tweezers and scissors to work with her.
