Translucent Succulents Are The Cutest Houseplant Trend
If succulent porn was a thing, we think we just found it.
Translucent succulents are a rare species of succulent that look like water-filled jewels that glisten in the sunlight.
Their leaves are translucent to allow sunlight to penetrate deep into the plant tissue, giving a pretty glass-like effect - and we're already obsessed.
Officially named Haworthia Cooperi, the stunning succulents wouldn't look out of place in a mermaid's home (*cough* ours). Don't you think?
Jo Lambell, director at online houseplant retailer Beards & Daisies, told Tyla: "These stunning transparent succulents are a slow growing succulent with tiny pearl shaped leaves which resemble glass when in the sun.
"This rare and highly sought after succulent is Native to South Africa can be found in various shades of white, green and the increasingly popular pink variety which all turn translucent in the light."
Jo says that the houseplant isn't easy to find with relatively few growers around the world. However, you can buy the seeds on Amazon to grow the succulent yourself.
The plant pro tipped that you should search for the 'truncata obtusa' variety for the most transparent leaves and invest in some good quality succulent/cacti soil for repotting.
When you do manage to get hold of a succulent or grow one yourself, Jo says they are "great for those who are new to plant parenthood or lead a busy lifestyle" as they don't require much watering.
"My top tip is to squeeze the leaves and if they feel 'squishy' give the plant some water. Keep your succulent in bright, direct sunlight and it can even cope with occasional direct light throughout the day, they'll love a windowsill," she adds.
These are so gorgeous we simply NEED one. Who's with us?
