We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reach down for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Aloinopsis are Mesembs of the Great Karoo! Aloinopsis grows in the Northern Cape, on the border with the Western Cape. They grow around the general area of Calvinia & Loeriesfontein on shaly lowers slopes, in flats or crevices. These are very low winter rainfall areas, with fairly hot mid summers and cold frosty winters. Need deeper pots due to root system. Needs good winter light to maintain leaf structure. Low summer activity as well as mid winter, careful with watering. They are also prone to redspider and mealy bug attacks, so keep a lookout.Need deeper pots due to root system.
