Aloinopsis malherbei 'Giant Jewel Plant'

$ 8.00 Sold Out
Size: 4"

Despite what its common name might suggest, Aloinopsis 'Giant Jewel Plant' is a petite succulent that will reach only a few inches tall and wide. A member of the msembs family, this ‘mimicry plant’ is well adapted to the harsh landscapes of its native South Africa, where its clusters of spoon-shaped green leaves, dotted with tubercles around the margins, allow it to blend in seamlessly with the rocky ground. Full sun will encourage ‘Giant Jewel Plant’ to reach its full potential, stressing to shades of blue, brown, or even gray. 

Like many msembs, ‘Giant Jewel Plant’ will put on growth and send up pale yellow, honey-scented flowers during the winter months, slipping into a state of dormancy during the summertime. While care must be taken not to overwater this succulent all year round, it is especially critical during the summer – indeed, it is possible not to water at all during this time, provided the plant is shielded from excessive heat. During the active growing season, water thoroughly only when soil is dry all the way through and provide ample airflow in order to avoid issues with dampness and rot – porous soil with adequate drainage will take care of the rest!

Hardy only to Zone 10, ‘Giant Jewel Plant’ must be protected from frost.


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!
