    Genus of about 20 species of evergreen tree succulents, closely related to Beaucarnea. They grow in semi-desert areas and bushland from the southern United States to Guatemala. Noliona microcarpa is a caespitous succulent forming low and wide tufts up to 1 m in diameter. The arched, linear, leathery, light green leaves, 60-90 cm long with flaking edges that form filaments. After 10-15 years the plant produces creamy white flowers collected in terminal panicles in spring. After flowering, the plant does not die but produces one or more shoots from the apex, thus starting the tillering process.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    Fairly rustic plant that tolerates frost. It can be grown outdoors in the olive climate, where temperatures do not fall below -7°/-9°C. Being a slow-growing species, it is suitable for cultivation in pots. Particularly decorative plant due to the dense tufts of curved leaves and small inflorescences. Grow in fertile, well-drained soil, in full sun. During the dry season it tolerates drought well, although it benefits from regular irrigation, waiting for the earth to dry between one administration and another.
