Neohenricia sibbettii 'Coral Plant'



Neohenricia sibbettii, known as the 'Coral Plant,' is a unique and eye-catching succulent in the family Aizoaceae. It forms low-growing clusters or mats of compact, rounded rosettes. The leaves are thick, fleshy, and triangular to cylindrical, often covered with fine hairs or a powdery coating that gives them a silvery-green to bluish-grey appearance. The plant's foliage can exhibit shades of pink, purple, or reddish-brown under stress or in bright light conditions. Neohenricia sibbettii blooms sporadically, producing small, daisy-like flowers that can be pink, purple, white, or yellow, emerging from the center of the rosettes.



Neohenricia sibbettii is native to the rocky, arid regions of Argentina and Bolivia, where it thrives in well-draining soils and rocky crevices. It is adapted to survive in harsh, dry conditions with minimal water.


Care Sheet:


  • Light:

    • Requirement: Bright, indirect light to partial shade.
    • Details: Neohenricia sibbettii prefers bright light conditions. If grown indoors, place it near a window with filtered light or in an east- or west-facing window. Protect it from intense, direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day.
  • Watering:

    • Requirement: Minimal watering.
    • Details: Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. During its active growing season (typically spring and autumn), water lightly as needed. Reduce watering significantly during the summer dormancy period to prevent root rot.
  • Soil:

    • Requirement: Well-draining soil.
    • Details: Use a specialized succulent or cactus mix, or create a blend with sand, perlite, and a small amount of organic matter to ensure excellent drainage. The soil should be gritty and porous to mimic its natural habitat.
  • Temperature:

    • Requirement: Moderate temperatures.
    • Details: Ideal temperatures range from 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C) during the active growing season. Protect the plant from temperatures below 50°F (10°C) and avoid sudden temperature fluctuations.
  • Humidity:

    • Requirement: Low humidity.
    • Details: Neohenricia sibbettii thrives in dry, low-humidity conditions. Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal issues and maintain overall plant health.
  • Fertilizing:

    • Requirement: Minimal fertilization.
    • Details: Fertilize sparingly with a diluted, balanced fertilizer during the growing season (spring to early autumn). Avoid applying fertilizer during the dormant summer period.
  • Repotting:

    • Requirement: Infrequent repotting.
    • Details: Repot only when necessary, typically every few years or when the plant has outgrown its container. Handle the plant carefully to avoid damaging its delicate leaves and roots.
  • Propagation:

    • Requirement: Seeds or division.
    • Details: Propagate Neohenricia sibbettii from seeds or by gently dividing mature clusters. Allow seeds to germinate in a well-draining soil mix, and carefully separate offsets from the parent plant, ensuring each division has sufficient roots for successful establishment.
