Faucaria tigrina
A strange little mound of succulent plant with "toothy" opposing leaves that look like gaping "jaws." It's all looks though, and no bite, as the "teeth" are very soft and only vicious in appearance. The purple & dark green, triangular leaves are packed tightly into little clumps that are never more than a couple of inches tall, and usually no wider than 8-10" wide.

The big surprise is the relatively "huge" dandelion-like, yellow flowers that pop out seemingly from nowhere. a single flower covering much of the plant.

Use in potted succulent groupings, nooks and crannies in rock and succulent gardens, and any area where this interesting little guy can be presented close to the eye of the viewer.

Tender to frost; lightly filtered shade to bright light; Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. An excellent house plant in colder climates.
Slows down in the summer months, and grows most actively in the cooler seasons.

This plant is cutting propagated. This plant was grown in an organic manner. I make my own media, use organic fertilizer and refrain from chemicals.

All plants are grown with care and are fully rooted & shipped in their 4“ containers.
What you see is what you get!!

Faucaria tigrina, native to South Africa, forms rosettes of thick, fleshy 3-angled grayish-green leaves edged in red. Leaves are covered with white dots upon close inspection and have many recurved soft translucent "teeth" along the margins. The genus Faucaria is part of the family Aizoaceae, which includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Prefers a soil with less organic material; extra pumice or perlite provides excellent drainage essential to these type of plants.. Will not tolerate waterlogged soils. Hardy to 32 F, but protection is advisable to prevent scarring.

I ship plants on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday (via Priority Mail), so they don’t get stuck at the Post Office over the weekend. Orders received after 2 PM PST Tuesday will ship the following Monday.

Shipping prices are configured for the furthest shipping locations, if actual shipping cost is more than $1.00 less, I will issue a refund.

Buyers: Please check out my shop policies before purchase

Happy Gardening!!
