Nananthus margaritifera

$ 9.00 Sold out
Size: 2"

Nananthus margaritifera, a charming and distinctive succulent, is a delightful addition to any plant collection. Native to South Africa, this small, low-growing succulent is admired for its compact, rosette-forming habit and striking leaf patterns. The rosettes are made up of thick, fleshy leaves that are green to blue-green in color, often with a hint of purple or brown. The leaves are covered with small, white, pearly dots or tubercles, which give the plant its name 'margaritifera', meaning 'pearl-bearing'.

This petite succulent rarely grows larger than a few inches in diameter, making it an ideal choice for small spaces, windowsills, or as part of a succulent arrangement. Nananthus margaritifera thrives in well-draining soil and prefers a sunny spot, but it can also tolerate partial shade. Like many succulents, it requires minimal watering, making it a great option for those seeking low-maintenance plants.

One of the most delightful features of Nananthus margaritifera is its blooming habit. The plant produces lovely, daisy-like flowers that are usually yellow or orange, adding a bright pop of color against its green foliage. These flowers typically appear in the cooler months, bringing cheer to the winter garden.


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!
