Pleiospilos nelii

Pleiospilos nelii is the bi-lobe known as "Split Rock". Native to Africa. Extremely succulent pair of grayish-green leaves form a clefted "egg-shape" known as a bi-lobe. Leaves are dotted with a myriad of tiny dots which are actually stomates. Can grow quite large to 4" in diameter. Silky golden-apricot flowers with white centers. The genus Pleiospilos is part of the family Aizoaceae, which includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Porous soil with excellent drainage. It is preferable that the soil does not contain much organic material, such as peat moss and that the plant is not fertilized with heavy nitrogen as this can cause an explosion of soft, flabby growth that can make the plant prone to bacterial rots. 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 when soil is dry during the active growing season. Protect from frost.
