Faucaria tuberculosa f 'Monstruosa'



Vase: 8.5 cm.

Family: Aziolaceae

Origin: South Africa



Succulent plant, compact, with large, green and fleshy leaves, triangular in shape and with small white teeth on the sides. From autumn to winter, it bears large golden-yellow flowers similar to the common “dandelion”.

Its name derives from Latin and literally means "jaws", referring to the similarity of the leaves with fierce mouths, thanks to their triangular and compact shape, with many small "teeth" on the edges. The foliage is usually grouped in a rosette and tends to become ground cover, that is, taking advantage of the available horizontal space and not the vertical one (in height they only reach a few centimeters). The colors that touch greenish-grey tones, combined with the often lighter marginal teeth, create a very decorative complex, which is even more accentuated, during the flowering period, due to the enormous inflorescences, with yellow petals, long and thin that surround a characteristic central "button". It is also very sought after in our latitudes for providing small spaces with a touch of exoticism!


Plant care:

Light: It needs a lot of light during all seasons, but avoiding direct sunlight, especially during the hottest hours of the day.


Temperature: It is preferable to keep it in mild temperatures and above all never below 10°C, so it is recommended to place it in sheltered and ventilated places during the winter.


Watering: Moderately, only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough once a week in spring and summer, a reduction every two months in autumn and completely discontinued in winter.


Substrate: A strongly draining soil is ideal, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate. or ideallySiro Cato.


Fertilization: They do not need frequent fertilization, it will be enough to dilute the fertilizer in the irrigation water once  twice a year. PreferablySiro Liquid Fertilizer Cato.
