Fatty plants are extra popular because of their distinctive, sometimes whimsical forms, they fit perfectly into the continuing trend to give botanicals an atmosphere-defining role in interiors.


Most of the fat plants originate from the tropics and subtropics and have originated in dry areas such as steppes, mountainous regions and semi-deserts in Africa and South and Central America. They are tough rascals who can survive in a warm, harsh sea climate in nature.

Choice of assortment

The assortment of fatty plants consists mainly of decorative foliage plants, although there are also flowering plants, such as Kalanchoe. The plants stand out especially because of their unique forms: Haworthia and Aloe have a high primal content, Echeveria is a party in graceful rosettes, Rhipsalis looks like coral, Sansevieria is proud and indestructible, Crassula is a stylized mini-tree. They combine great and are offered both mixed and by name.
