Bijlia cana is endemic to South Africa

Bijlia dilatata, commonly known as Bijlia cana, is an almost stemless, perennial, mat forming succulent up to 12 cm and more in diameterFlowers are bright yellow, and born on short stalks in winter.
Stems: The plants produce 2-3 short branches in small to large clusters.
Leaves: Fleshy, pale greyish-green, or yellowish tinged with red especially under strong sunlight and when kept dry

Cultivation and Propagation: Bijlia cana is easy to grow. These plants grow on winter rain and were heading for summer dormancy.
Exposure: It needs full sun or light shade.
Watering: Requires little water otherwise its epidermis breaks (resulting in unsightly scars). Bijlia cana should be watered in the fall as new growth appears. The numerous yellow flowers appear in winter. After flowering, decrease watering to prepare it for a rather dry summer rest. Water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shrivelling but will generally grow even in summer if given water. Requires good drainage.
Hardiness: The growing period of this plant is from autumn to spring, when it requires a temperature of 10-16°C and a reasonable amount of water. Keep cool and shaded in summer. Hardy to -2°C.
