Blue Pickle Vine
About Blue Pickle Vine
The Blue Pickle Vine evolved their signature shape as an adaptation to store water in dry environments. In place of leaves, cells in the green pickles perform photosynthesis to feed the plant. Translucent crescents act like windows to allow sunlight to reach cells on the inside of the pickles and increase their ability to capture the sun! 🪟☀️

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Blue Pickle Vine after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
