This little pickle plant is such a good grower! It’s just been sprouting new pickles off left and right. It seems to enjoy the mini greenhouse it lives in but I also noticed two tiny little bugs walking on the soil today.

Such an easy going plant, likes a good water but not too regularly, otherwise can get a little bit squishy. Super soft and fun to touch, definitely something unique and a good talking point.

Pros: Easy to care for, very forgiving.
Cons: Needs full sun, so you may need a grow light if you don’t have the sun levels it prefers.

Take cuttings almost biweekly from this as it grows so fast, these rocket up into large plants in a matter of weeks with lots of water and fun, easiest plant I’ve ever cared for. Forget to water it? No problem, won’t hold a grudge or lose a leaf or brown up, little bit of water and back to besties. Favourite plant by FAR, currently propagating an army of them to create a mega pickle plant bush.
