Most plant's common names are based upon their appearance and this cactus is no different - its foliage is leathery and long, resembling a beaver's tail. It originates from tropical Asian regions and is very easy to care for.
The leaves of this plant tend to grow in all directions, so embrace this and hang its pot from a shelf so it can trail its foliage.
The Beavertail Plant uses its leaves to store water, so ensure its soil is dry before you water it again.
