Cheiridopsis pillansii

Cheridopsis pillansii is a small cushion forming and low growing leaf succulent.
Stems: Very short with only 2 or 4 leaves.
Leaves: Pale grey, fat, succulent with rounded ends and many dark dots (translucent in backlight) each up to 4,5 cm long. The new leaves are shaped like a pair of cupped hands and appear from within the old leaf pair fissure which gives the impression of the plant having sets of alternate appressed leaves. Leaves are smooth
Flowers: Large, scented, up to 6 cm in diameter, usually yellow, but also pinkish or orange in colour.
Blooming season: Autumn.
Note: The Cheiridopsis is dormant in summer.

Cultivation: The Cheiridopsis is easy to grow. These plants grow in winter rainareas and head for dormancy in summer. Requires little water, otherwise its epidermis breaks (resulting in unsightly scars). Regular water in autumn through to spring. Water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shrivelling but it will generally grow even in summer if given water. Requires good drainage. Keep cool and shaded in summer, needs full sun or light shade. Hardy to -2°C
