You Can Now Get Spooky Little Succulents That Glow In The Dark

Too scared to sleep in the dark from watching all those scary movies? Then you’re probably finding yourself sleeping with the lights on. But you don’t really want to receive a frightening electricity bill next month, right? So you’re probably looking for a more cost-effective way to keep the monsters away.

Nightlights and glow-in-the-dark decals, though handy and cost-effective, are things that belong in your childhood bedroom. Fortunately, Aldi has released a collection of glow-in-the-dark succulents that are both budget and environmentally-friendly! It’s basically the grown-up version of your glow-in-the-dark moon and stars.

Aldi’s glow-in-the-dark succulents are the spookiest houseplants we’ve seen.

The “Glowing Star in the Dark succulent” owes its name from the plant’s pointy, star-shaped form. With its uncanny glow, this succulent will surely be a great addition to anyone’s growing plant collection.  A couple of these succulents can easily add a touch of spook and mystique to your space!

The Glowing Star in the Dark can withstand dry spells like any other succulent. Which makes it a suitable houseplant for first-time plant parents and busybodies with a growing indoor garden.


To get these succulents to glow in the dark, Aldi applied several coats of a special, non-toxic compound on the succulent’s leaves throughout its cultivation. More importantly, you won’t have to worry about its glow fading away after a few days, because these plants’ glow is actually sourced from sunlight. And since the coating’s been applied throughout its growing period, we’re confident that the glow-in-the-dark glaze won’t wear off for a long time.

Succulents are already gorgeous on their own, with their unique leaf shapes and colors. But with its special coating of glow-in-the-dark compound, Aldi’s succulents are definitely in a league of their own!


During the daytime, these special succulents sport a frosted white appearance. As though its leaves have been covered with a delicate layer of powdery snow. But when the sun sets and the lights go out, these succulents will emit a soft, mystical green glow. How awesome!

It might not be easy to get your hands on these season-exclusive, glow-in-the-dark succulents though. Because unfortunately, a limited number of these succulents are available at select Aldi stores. You can also get them on Amazon.
