Hey, I'm Brighamia Insignis AKA 'The Hawaiian Palm' No prizes for guessing where I come from! I'm a critically endangered species but easy-to-grow succulent plant that produces a sweet fragrance when I flower. My thick trunk is topped with a rosette of shiny leaves which makes me a very unusual and decorative houseplant.
I’m in a 12cm hanging pot and foliage is around 45cm length.
I like a bright spot in the winter and semi-shade in the summer. Keep me out of direct sun as I'll lose all my leaves.
Over-watering as I'm drought tolerant and store water well in my trunk.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I don't need too much water so just water when my soil is dry to touch. Mist my leaves regularly increase humidity. Make sure my winter temperature stays above 10°C and repot me every couple of years.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I can be toxic to pets and children. Keep me out the way!
