Faucaria candida

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Flowers: Daisy-like with white petals. The flowers open only in full sunlight.

Blooming season: Late autumn to winter. The flowers open only in full sunlight.

Cultivation and propagation: Faucarias are the good choice for anyone wanting to start growing succulents. They are quite hardy and can take a short period of light frost and in very dry warm regions these succulents make very impressive out door ground covers. As house plants they tend to grow in fair weather and rest when temperatures are too hot or too cool.

Exposition: They need full sun to light shade, it should be protected from too much exposure in Summer. They do not do well in full shade as they tend to etiolate, fall over and rot easily.

Watering: In cultivation the plant can be watered year-round. The plants are well watered during the growing season and allowed to dry thoroughly before watering again and will tolerate some over watering.

Interesting spiked leaves pattern

The Faucaria candida was nicely packaged and arrived in great shape, exactly as pictured. It is doing very well outside under a patio, getting bright shaded sunlight.

Wonderfully unusually structured succulent.

This unique succulent plant, Faucaria candida, was shipped with loving care by (obviously) experienced team members at Planet Desert. It arrived intact and is now enjoying the light on my west windowsill. Happy customer here.
