Faucaria tigrina


Faucaria tigrina. It is a small, stemless succulent, about 80mm in diameter. The triangularly shaped leaves arise in pairs from the center of the plant and bear long soft, threadlike teeth along the margins. The leaves vary in color in response to sunlight, from light to dark green, or pinkish red to purple. Small white spots decorate the leaves and give it a rough surface. Sometimes the old leaves can form a kind of stem in older specimens. Sowing: The small seeds can be sown in pots of fine, well-drained sand, any time during the summer months when temperatures are warm. Cover the seeds with a very fine layer of grit and water from below with a fungicide to prevent damping off. For the first 3-4 days cover the pots with a sheet of glass/clear Perspex to keep the humidity levels high. Remove the glass and replace it with light shade cloth and mist once or twice a day for the next two weeks after which most seeds should have germinated. From then on misting can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: June 2023
