Schwantesia borcherdsii

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. All of our plants are grown under the same conditions, although not all the plants are the same. You will receive a similar plant in size and shape to the ones in the pictures. Our plants are hand-picked and carefully selected to bring you the best quality possible. Please allow us up to 3 business days to process your order. If you wish to receive your order on a specific date, or have special instructions, please add a note at the checkout . The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

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.
