The name of this unusual plant, which never reaches considerable size, derives from Greek and means "with the appearance of limestone", to indicate its peculiarity: the rosettes, in fact, are made up of fleshy leaves with small white swellings on its enlarged tip, thanks to which they tend to blend in with the calcareous soils in which they grow. This feature gives the Titanopsis a truly bizarre appearance which, together with its iridescent colors from green to pinkish-reddish when exposed to considerable lighting, make it very special and an unmissable specimen in your plant collection! Titanopsis is not a demanding plant, here are some easy tips for its proper care and cultivation: It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations. Furthermore, if you put it in direct sunlight, this will make its leaves take on their typical, beautiful colored shades. It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it still survives even at temperatures close to freezing if the soil is completely dry. Water moderately, only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer, once a month in autumn and to suspend watering completely in winter. The best option is a well-draining and porous soil, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice or lapilli. They do not need frequent fertilization, so it will be sufficient to dilute a specific fertilizer with watering once a year.
