Aloinopsis villetii

(This plant comes in a 3.5" 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).

Aloinopsis villetii is rosette-shaped and can tolerate all kinds of weather conditions. The plant is native to South Africa and belongs to the family of Aizoaceae. It goes dormant during the summer period and can grow up to a height of 2 inches. 

Growth Rate

Even though this plant grows very slowly, gardeners love to grow it for its attractive flowers and textured leaves. 

Flowering

The flowers when grown during the cooler months, look daisy-like. They are pale yellow, golden yellow, yellowish bronze, or salmon pink in color. 

Watering and Feeding

Water the plant less in both summer and winter seasons. If grown in a bigger pot, water it less than average. Feed them once during their growing season. The right fertilizer for this plant is the one that has all the micronutrients and trace elements. 

Soil

Aloinopsis villetii requires ample drainage, so the soil mix should be porous. The plant grows well in the ground or in a container. 

Hardiness

Aloinopsis grows best in the winter season, considering its frost tolerance of anywhere above -12.2° C (10° F). Its hardiness zone is 8a to 11b.

Light

Provide full sunlight in all seasons and keep them cool with half shade during the summertime. Make sure they get adequate sunlight since inadequacy can lead to poor growth and shape. 

Propagation

The plant can be propagated through cuttings or division. Cutting is easier. Remove a shoot and let it dry off at a cool place for a week. Plant it in sandy soil and witness the rapid rooting. 

This plant is known for its innumerable and controversial forms of variety. Since the plant is so rare, growing and nurturing it is considered no less than a gift from nature itself.
