These Succulents Look Just Like Mermaid Tails
Look at this plant, isn’t it neat?
The latest example of unique flora to catch our eye is the coral cactus, a fan-shaped plant that looks just like a mermaid tail… and we want it to be part of our world.
Also known as Euphorbia lactea Cristata, this “Franken-plant” combines two succulents to form one cactus-like, fan-shaped plant that looks more like it belongs under the sea than on a windowsill.
According to EpicGardening.com, coral cacti vary in appearance, and may have a fan of white, red, green, yellow, or purple ruffled succulent growth on top of what looks like a tall, green “stem.”

Keep in mind that this “cactus” isn’t actually a cactus and should be cared for like a succulent. They require well-draining soil and full to medium sunlight.
