We must place them indoors, always close to a source of natural light. Bush of about 3m in height, with a brown/grey trunk and thick branches. Its leaves are also thick, green oval or round. The stem is 1 to 2 cm long. It has got lot of small pale pink flowers which are grouped in solid bunches.
Location: Exterior the whole year with lots of sun. It is also adaptable to interior spaces if it is placed besides a window.
Watering: Moderate because of its capacity to store water in its leaves and stem. To make it flower, leave it between 7 and 10 days without watering and then begin watering moderately at first and then in abundance.
