Description:

Graceful dwarf succulent, a real jewel in miniature consisting of pairs of leaves extremely fleshy and joined at the base, among which during the flowering season will bloom large and lively flowers daisies on the notes of white or fuchsia, able to maintain and proliferate for a long time. The leaves, without stem, do not exceed 2-3 cm of height, but rather tend to give life to pleasant tufts with multiple heads of various sizes. It is a very rare species, because coming from extremely small areas, but at the same time it is absolutely recognizable for its unmistakable whitish epidermis (hence the name of the species itself) and for its angular shape, oblique cut, similar to the quartz pebbles between which it grows spontaneously and with which it is able to camouflage itself to defend itself from animal attacks. Due to the similarity of its angular shape divided by the central fissure this original succulent is often commonly known also as "shark’s mouth"!

Plant care:

It requires an exposure to full sun. However, it can be placed in a partially shaded area only if it still receives a lot of light throughout the year.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 10 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately in spring and autumn but only when the soil is completely dry, reduce watering to once every two months in summer and suspend it completely in winter.

The ebst soil is a substrate suitable for succulents, as long as it is well draining and prevents rotting.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
