Fenestraria Aurantiaca - Baby Toes
A native to South Africa and Namibia, Fenestraria Aurantica is a very unusual succulent with small club like leaves. In cultivation the plants are usually grown above ground, but in natural habitat, only the very tops of the leaves are apparent.
The leaves, have a clear ‘window’ on the top allowing light to penetrate and reach the side walls of the leaves to photosynthesise. prefers strong light, lower light conditions will cause the leaves to elongate taller.
A winter grower, water lightly during the growing season, and very lightly during the dormant summer months. Prone to rotting with overwatering, so use a very well drained soil.
Grows to a height of around 5 cm, and spreads to large clumps with offset plants.
Cold tolerant down to -4°C if kept dry.
