|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.|
