Prickly pear

Opuntia ficus-indica


Curio ficoides, also known as skyscraper Senecio and Mount Everest Senecio, is a species of succulent plant, in the genus Curio (Asteraceae), indigenous to South Africa. The gray-blue wax coating on the cylindrically shaped leaves gives a special allure.

This sun worshipper has a luxurious look and requires little care. The plant is a popular topic of conversatio amongst plant lovers. And if you have a friend who climbs mountains, it’s a handy gift idea.
