Schwantesia borcherdsii

Schwantesia borcherdsii is a newly rediscovered Mesemb with interestingly shaped and textured leaves. Like other Lithops related genera such as Lapidaria, the old leaves shrivel and die as the new pairs form. It flowers with a single, yellow flower, up to 2 inches in diameter. It opens during the day.
Light: It thrives best in full sun or light shade in summer. High levels of light are needed in winter to flower and for good plant development.

Water: Water regularly in autumn through spring and water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shriveling but it will generally grow even in summer if given water. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots.
