The Florida Department of Agriculture announced Friday that it will plant the world’s first indoor succulent in the state.
The indoor succubus, called the Tallamaria, was named for the town in the eastern Dominican Republic.
The Tallamarians are a member of the family Fagaceae, and their names are derived from the word “tall.”
The Tallamarian has white hairs, dark green eyes and a black body.
Fruit is edible.
The plants will be placed in an outdoor room, which will be covered with a layer of plastic, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection.
The Tallamsaria will be housed in a tank, with the temperature set to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
“The Tallamsarian is the first indoor species of succulent to be planted outside,” said Dan Toth, a botanist at the state’s Botanical Gardens.
Toth said the Tallamsaris will grow for several years.
The state hopes to grow up to 15 varieties.
The tallamarian, which has white, blue or red flowers, is the only indoor species in the United States.
