Striking and structural the Curio ‘Mount Everest’ is a stylish succulent that thrives in a bright sunny spot. This makes it perfect for a windowsill, unlike many other houseplants that prefer a little less direct sunlight. 

Its fleshy, tapered leaves grow upwards and are the most beautiful blue/grey/green colour with a slightly waxy, soft coating. Happy with a range of temperatures and tolerant of some drought, this is the perfect easy-care succulent. It helps that it also looks incredibly stylish and architectural!

Moisture storing leaves

Moisture is stored in its fleshy tapering leaves, which is why it is a drought-tolerant plant.

Slow growing

Can reach up to 80cm tall in full maturity, although this is extremely unlikely when grown as a houseplant.

Blooms (occasionally)

Curio ‘Mount Everest’ occasionally produces greeny/white subtle blooms; however, these are nothing compared to its incredible foliage.

Water: Shouldn’t sit in water, as roots will rot. It's best to water and then let it dry out completely before the next watering. 

Humidity: Happy with average household humidity.
