Pleiospilos simulans

(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).

Common names include Stone plant

One of the largest of the Pleiospilos species suited for hot sunny positions.

Flowers: Scented, daisy-like, yellow to orange.

Blooming season: Late summer or early autumn after the summer dormancy period. The blooms open in mid-afternoon and close just after sunset.

Cultivation and propagation: It is a very adaptable plant, it will grow whenever it has water and good sunlight, but it will become dormant in very hot weather to conserve water. It needs full sun to light shade with a very open compost that drains quickly.

The container should be at least 10 cm deep to accommodate the long tap root. Very little water is needed during the growing season. In late summer to early fall before nighttime temperatures fall, watering of the plants is stepped up to once a week. Watering is restricted throughout the winter months. In the winter, it grows new leaves from the center of the split, and the new leaves then consume the old leaves. If the plant is over watered, the old leaves remain and the plant usually rots and dies. Not to water it when it is splitting, just leave it alone.

At this time, we are not shipping international, we are in a process to get some certification until then, we won’t be able to ship to any country outside of the US

All international sales are shipped bare root. We don't supply Phyto certificates, it is too expensive and complicated for small orders. In some cases, the customs authorities at the destination country might decide to open the packages  and will be up tho them to determine if the product can enter the country. for that reason, we can't guarantee the delivery and will be up to their customers own risk to decide to purchase our plants
