Kosmik Kaktus is the label behind the beautiful, colored succulent.
These plants are colored using a dye and are said to be food-safe and non-toxic by the company. Below is a picture of a painted succulent and how it grows out. The dye had little to no effect on the succulent. The is a massive debate on whether purchasing a colored succulent is worth it or not. On my end, I have had this succulent for over four years, and it doesn’t show any sign of deterioration.
A clay pot with a drainage hole at the bottom. For best results, use a terra-cotta pot.
I used Miracle-Gro Cactus Palm Citrus Potting Soil. I also used sand to help create more drainage. 2-part soil to 1-part sand.
