Vern's survival guide
Everyone has a neighbour that is always there when you need them. That's Vern. Need a cup of sugar? Ask Vern. Need a 3/8 Drive 7/16 inch 6-point SAE Deep Socket for that car repair? Ask Vern. Vern is always there to lend a hand. Vern is a Zebra Howorthia or Zebra Cactus. As an air purifier he's one of the best, his sap can be used to sooth burns and minor skin irritation. And he does it all with an 'Awe shucks' attitude that we love! Everyone needs a Vern!
Our Care App will help you after your purchase.
What makes Vern so special
Vern is a close relative to Vera, Aloe vera, that is. These succulents are easy to please. They are accustomed to dry, sunny environments so keep them in a bright south facing spot with lots of sunlight. Water only when the soil is dry to the touch. As air purifiers they are top notch especially for removing formaldehyde from the air. Vern is a close relative to Vera, Aloe vera, that is. These succulents are easy to please.
