Thick, slightly triangular leaves form a 3-inch wide cluster of color and texture in Titanopsis hugo-schlechteri, which is most known for its rough, concrete-like tubercles along the upper margins of each leaf. The leaves themselves are a soft minty green, with peachy pink or even purple flushing that deepens in bright sunlight. A member of the msembs, or mimicry succulent, family, this South African native is designed to camouflage with the indigenous rocky terrain, forming low mats of leaves nestled down within the sandy soil.
Easy enough for even beginner growers, Titanopsis hugo-schlechteri likes to be kept warm, and does not do well in temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Bright sunlight will bring out its most active growth and richest coloration, and it can tolerate periods of dryness – though a regular and thorough watering routine during the spring and fall growing seasons will encourage its success. A porous soil mixture low in organic matter, such as a cactus substrate supplemented with pumice, course sand, or perlite, will stave off rot and pests, as will a well-draining pot and ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface.
Once it has matured for a year or two, a contented Titanopsis hugo-schlechteri will send up daisy-like blooms in shades of yellow or even orange.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
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!
