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 reachdown 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.
Faucaria tigrina aka tiger jaws are native to South Africa. The genus faucaria belongs to the aizoaceae family and contains nine members, of which the tiger jaws (faucaria tigrina) is the most popular. The yellow blooms open in the afternoon and close at night. They tolerate shade but do best in a sunny location. As with all succulents, use a well draining soil and water from spring to fall. Always allow to dry out between watering. Fertilize only spring to fall. The plant is actually more green than it looks.
