If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. 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 different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Faucaria tuberculosa

Faucarias are in the family of Aizoaceae, which includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Faucaria tuberculosa, native to South Africa, forms rosettes of grayish-green fleshy triangular leaves with succulent "teeth" along the margins and covered with a myriad of whitish gnarly tubercles and raised projections. New growth sometimes blushes pink in bright light. It is a highly variable species; grey green leaves with large tubercles or wartlike projections on upper side of leaf, teeth on margins sessile flower autumn sa 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.
