(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List)
This low-growing, mat-forming succulent is from Orange State in South Africa is adaptable to most conditions provided it has good drainage. A slow growing plant if water is restricted, it can be quite vigorous if sufficient water is available and has a frost tolerance of minus 18 degrees C if kept very dry in winter.
The plant consists of paired leaves which are different in shape from each other and grow 40 mm long and up to 9 mm broad. The leaves have a warty appearance imparted by dots on the leaf surface. Flowering is spring to summer but the plant seems to bloom almost randomly. Flowers are bright yellow, 35-45 mm in diameter.
The root system is thick and tuberous and, if re-potted so as to expose a portion of the roots, the plants takes on a much sought-after architectural form that adds to its interest. Additionally, the plants tend to grow more “heads” when they are raised.
A plant for beginners as they are easy and rewarding plants to grow.
