Price: $5.50

Sku: 0850116


Faucaria tigrina, native to South Africa, forms rosettes of thick, fleshy 3-angled grayish-green leaves. Leaves are covered with white dots upon close inspection and have many recurved soft translucent "teeth" along the margins. Large silky yellow flowers in the afternoon during the autumn months.The genus Faucaria is part of the family Aizoaceae, which includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Prefers a soil with less organic material; extra pumice or perlite provides excellent drainage essential to these type of plants. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Will not tolerate water-logged soils. Somewhat frost tolerant, but protection is advisable to prevent scarring.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
