Strange but beautiful indoor plants that you haven’t even heard of

In the world there are so many different indoor plants, how many fans of home vegetation does not gather for a lifetime. And among them there are such beautiful indoor plants that look very unusual and sometimes even strange for our perception. As a rule, these are popular now unpretentious succulent plants come from hot countries that store water in the stems or leaves. However, about such succulents that we show below, not even all experts in indoor plants have heard!

Rowley's Root / Senecio Rowleyanus

We were first surprised by these beautiful indoor plants originally from Namibia. These are indoor succulents having unusual small spherical leaves, similar to green peas. Perhaps that is why many of those who see Rowley's gardener for the first time want to taste it, which is not worth doing, because it is poisonous.

Rowley's Groundsel in a Pot

However, you can’t argue with its unusual beauty: when the shoots no longer fit inside the pot, it is often hung from the ceiling so that the plant hangs gracefully down. Therefore, the locals even called the shrubber "threads of pearls." In good conditions, it even blooms, throwing out small white inflorescences. Such beautiful plants are unpretentious, tolerate even poor lighting and dryness, however, and in this case they will not look very decorative. But if you ensure that Rowley's gardener has bright and diffused lighting, sufficient, but not excessive watering, and a temperature of 22-25 degrees, then in the spring it will delight you with flowering.

Haworthia Cooper / Haworthia cooperi

The following incredibly beautiful and unusual succulent plants, of which very few people know - havortiya. In general, this plant in the world there are more than 160 species, which are quite different from each other in appearance, but in this article we want to pay attention exactly to the havorti and Cooper. It has rosettes of translucent fleshy leaves of an unusual shape, which look like a scattering of bubbles with water glowing in the sun. The spectacle is amazing!

Haworthia houseplant

Like all room succulents, havortia is not too whimsical in care, except that for comfortable development it needs soil with a level of acidity not lower than 6, and every couple of years it should be carefully not to damage the roots, transplant into a new pot.

Trachyandra tortilis / Trachyandra tortilis

But what rare indoor plants from South Africa have become one of the hits of the Internet among succulents - of course, thanks to its amazing appearance. Where has it been seen that the plant has such strange leaves that, by themselves, as if alive, curl into a spiral, like curls or macaroni! Among the flowers and herbs familiar to our latitudes, you will not find such a thing.

Trachyandra plant

But, at least in flower shops about trachiander and know-do not know, it can be ordered online. However, it should be borne in mind that there are not so many offers, and the buyer is quickly on them - despite the fact that the price usually bites. Alternatively, you can try to grow a trachandra in a pot on your own, but this will take a lot of energy and at least a few years so that she can grow as much as is necessary to start flowering.

Sedum Morganianum Sight

If you like beautiful potted plants like Rowley's gadget, which can grow so large that they start hanging down from the pot like creepers in the jungle, then pay attention to the stonecrop of Morgan. In the wild, he can reach two meters in length, and in the house - about one and a half meters. For their length and unusual appearance, these indoor plants have been dubbed the “donkey's tail.

Morgan's Sedum bloom

The fleshy leaves of the sedum look attractive on their own, but it becomes even more beautiful when it begins to bloom with small pink and red flowers. But he should definitely provide bright lighting, and in the summer - access to the sun and air directly. Naturally, such a tropical plant also likes the appropriate temperature - from 24 to 30 degrees.

Jade Cuban / Crassula Umbella

Umbrella sweeties, or crassulas - unusual houseplants that you rarely find in the homes of our compatriots look very exotic. And by the way, the beloved “money tree” or the oval bastard belongs to the genus of these succulents.

Krassula umbella

The umbrella hoodling is completely justifies its name: its interesting smooth leaves really resemble not only round buns and bowls, but also umbrellas. And from each such umbrella grows a long stalk with inflorescences. Our amateur gardeners do not practically grow such a crassula, but for good reason - because it is completely unpretentious, and it also looks so curious.

Kostenets breeding / Asplenium Nidus

In the beautiful, but not too common indoor plants, you can also record the next guest from the tropics. Something he really looks like a nest, as its leaves grow from one central outlet, framing it.

Asplenium in a pot

In the wild, Kostenets grows to the size of a decent bush, but in room conditions it does not grow so much, feeling great and in a pot. Its juicy green leaves will surely delight your gaze with its freshness, if you keep the temperature comfortable for aslenium, plant it in peat soil, and also provide the plant with bright but diffused illumination.

Euphorbia Tirucalli

And such beautiful and unusual houseplants from Africa are called “pencil cacti,” although in reality this is such a strange euphorbia, just the stems it does not have leaves. It looks like thick, broken green undergrowth, but some species also have a yellow-red tint on the tops of their stems. Hence another name of the succulent - “fire sticks”.

Euphorbia poisonous

At home, such succulent plants look impressive, but you need to be very careful in handling them, keep children and animals away from them: the juice of this milkweed is very toxic, and if it gets into your eyes it can cause blindness of death. By the way, rubber was once produced from this juice. Well, since it is used to grow on a land unsuitable for growing crops, it is simply a godsend for lazy owners - 2-3 times a month watering is enough. The main thing is to provide it with enough light, and everything will be fine.

Lithops / Lithops

It may seem to someone that these room succulents look weird, but in our opinion they are also beautiful in their own way: would you have refused to settle these lovely pebbles in your apartment? By the way, the people call them "live stones",and this is quite logical: even colored succulents can be confused with pebbles, what can we say about the types of lithops with gray colors, which look like natural cobbles.

Living stones

Appearing in the arid South African deserts, these unusual plants grow among stones and sand, which, obviously, was the reason for their extraordinary structure: each lithops consists of two thick and fleshy leaves that are joined together, and separates them only a thin slit along the center from which the spike grows. Caring for them is very simple, because Lithops got used to the hot and dry climate, lack of moisture and an excess of bright light.

Succulent-dolphin / Senecio peregrinus

And this is a new type of plant - incredibly popular in Japan hybrid indoor succulents, whose leaves resemble tiny dolphins jumping above the water, so for the time being they are called “succulents-dolphins” and sometimes “dolphin necklace”. See for yourself:

Dolphin Succulent

In spring, these beautiful succulents even bloom, throwing a couple of shoots with pink-white buds that look like undisclosed dandelions. The most interesting thing is that the shape of the leaves remains unchanged both in the young plant and in the species that has seen - only the length of the vine changes, and the “dolphins” become even larger and more realistic.Truth to pick off the leaves of the plant to play with dolphins, we still do not recommend.
