Aloinopsis schoonesii, native to South Africa, is a member of the family Aizoaceae, which includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Small clustering rosette succulent with chubby glaucous gray-green leaves. The tops of the leaves are dotted with tiny translucent windows that appear as mere specks. Thick taproots store water during periods of drought. Satiny yellow flowers to 3/4" in diameter with red stripes. Prefers very porous soil with less humus or peat moss. Decomposed granite is often an excellent media as it has many trace minerals and is similar to the South African quartz fields where these and others of the "Stone Mimicry" are found growing. Bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly during growing season. Protect from frost.
