7 Strange and Unique Succulent You've Probably Never Seen Before

7 Strange and Unique Succulent You've Probably Never Seen Before 

Homiful.com -- Succulents and cacti are a bizarre and diverse group. These drought-tolerant plants range in size from little to massive. Some have spikes, whereas others do not. They are also available in every hue of the rainbow. Even with all of that variation, there are certain plants that are particularly odd-looking. Like these "7 Strange and Unique Succulent You've Probably Never Seen Before" below!  

Dioscorea Elephantipes


Dioscorea elephantipes has the appearance of a turtle shell and can grow to be quite large. It is also one of the few succulents that requires shade! The plant's caudex, or base, will continue to grow additional scales that extend outward from the root base. If you desire a small mesemb that looks like geometric rock formations, this plant is for you!

Cereus forbesii monstrose ‘Ming Thing’


The accurate term for the shape is club-like. Ming Thing is a fantastic species that may reach a height of one foot. It performs well both on the ground and in containers. It's an excellent contrast succulent for plants that lack texture, and its finest feature is its bright purple blooms that bloom exclusively at night.

Kalanchoe rhombopilosa ‘Pies from Heaven’


Madagascar is home to this weird-looking succulent with an even more peculiar name. The plant normally grows to be around 12 inches tall. The woolly leaves are silvery-green with brown mottling and about 1 inch long. 

The shrub produces tiny greenish-yellow flowers while in bloom. Kalanchoe rhombopilosa thrives on infrequent watering, so allow the soil to dry between waterings.

Espostoa melanostele ‘Peruvian Old Lady Cactus’


When kept in a pot, the cactus grows to around 10 inches in size. The Peruvian Old Lady Cactus may appear cuddly, but its distinctive wool hides sharp spines. It is not, however, a frost-hardy plant, so make sure you live in a frost-free region before planting your bizarre new cactus outside. 

As with most cacti, well-drained soil and enough of sunlight are required. Water should be used infrequently, especially during the cold months.

Euphorbia obesa ‘Baseball Plant’


This dome-shaped cactus is often grayish-green with bands of orange or purple that form a plaid-like pattern. It's a little cactus that may grow to be eight inches tall and 3.5 inches broad. Euphorbia obesa blooms are small, greenish-yellow, and have a lovely aroma. 

Baseball Plants enjoy mild shade, but if the plaid pattern fades, the plant need more light. Adequate drainage, like with other cacti, is required to prevent root rot. 

Opuntia subulata – Eve’s Needle


They have thick, broad stems with huge 'needles' that encircle the stems. Spines extend further out from the tips of the needles to protect this plant. They have the look of an artichoke, although they are more closely linked to a genus of cactus known as chollas. Eve's Needle will yield exquisite, almost tea-cup-like red roses when mature.

Echeveria ‘Mauna Loa’


The hybrid Mauna Loa is ideal for making a statement in your garden. The leaves of this echeveria species are among of the waviest. These guys are not only stunning with their pinks, greys, and light greens, but they are also huge. 

Each rosette may grow to be two feet broad, and the stems are robust and durable, reaching a length of 18 inches in total.
