These beauties are natural rays of sunshine. You don’t need green fingers to look after Salt Lake. Water the plant regularly, especially if you have planted it in a pot. Its growers recommend putting the plant in either a sunny or shaded spot, although a sunny spot is best because then the salt crystals on the leaves will sparkle beautifully when the sun shines on them. A great tip: if you want to keep the plant in the garden all year round, cover it well in winter. A great choice of a sustainable plant!
