Faucaria felina 'Tiger Jaws'

$ 8.00
Size: 4"
DESCRIPTION

Tiger jaws is a rich green succulent with stacked, triangular leaves has a growth pattern, coupled with menacing-looking but harmless spines along the leaf margins, that truly does resemble its namesake! In its dry native habitat, the soft spines play a role in directing moisture towards the root of the plant. With a clumping growth form, each individual parent plant or offset can reach up to six inches tall and wide, making for a fascinating ‘filler’ component in any succulent arrangement or rock garden.

Part of the family of msembs, or mimicry succulents, tiger jaws hails from southern Africa, where it thrives in extremely bright and arid conditions. As such, ensure that it receives plenty of bright light, as well as ample airflow around the leaves. Water thoroughly but sparingly, soaking the soil only once it has had a chance to completely dry. Further, be sure to use an especially porous substrate, such as a cactus mix supplemented with course sand, perlite, or pumice, to help stave off issues such as rot or pest infestation.

As the plant matures, it will produce large, dandelion-like blooms in the late summer, which will open each morning and senesce by nightfall. While it can be placed outdoors during the warmer months, provided a proper acclimation period, be sure to bring it indoors during the colder months, as it is only hardy to Zone 10.

    PLANT SIZING & APPEARANCE

    Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
