| SHIPPING INFORMATION: |
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.
|The genus Titanopsis is part of the family Aizoaceae (synonymous with Mesembryanthemaceae), which also includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Titanopsis calcareum, native to South Africa, forms rosettes to 3" in diameter with semi-flattened paddle-shaped leaves densely covered with grayish-green tubercles. Tips of leaves are very warty in appearance. In its native habitat, often grows in rocky quartz fields in soils with high limestoe content. Titanopsis calcareum is one of the plants considered "Mimicry Plants", and is nearly undectable in its native habitat due to its cryptic coloring and rough texture that effectively mimics rocks and the surrounding environment. Light yellow daisy-like flowers with many petals. Requires porous soil with excellent drainage. Bright light. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, but allow to dry out between waterings. Some frost tolerance, but it is advisable to protect from frost to prevent possible scarring.|
