Description:

Its name honors Dr. Fritz Schafer, a Namibian physician and botanist. It is a dwarf, bonsai-like succulent plant with a caudex where it stores water to survive during drought periods. It is a low growing succulent plant, branched at the base, with knotted stems almost intertwined with each other. In winter, during its vegetative period, it grows its smooth green, egg-shaped leaves. Before entering the dormancy period, it blooms in late summer with a pale pink or white bell-shaped inflorescence.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of brightness during all seasons and rather airy places.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 6 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but 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 soil suitable for cacti, even better if further mixed with pumice or lapilli.

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