Titanopsis Calcarea Concrete leaf

(This plant comes in a 3.5" 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).

Concrete Leaf, Jewel Weed, and Carpet Leaf are some of the many names given to Titanopsis Calcarea. This funnel-shaped succulent grows up to 3 inches tall and belongs to the Aizoaceae family. The plant goes dormant in winter and is native to South Africa.  

Growth Rate

Since the carpet leaf plant is a slow grower, do not expect much growth in the first few years. However, you can boost its growth with occasional fertilizer and ensuring Titanopsis Calcarea care. 

Flowering

In spring and autumn, large and showy yellow and orange colored flowers are produced. The plant begins to flower at about 2 years of age.  

Watering and Feeding

Titanopsis Calcarea watering in the morning is best as it gives the plant time to dry out. Try not to get the leaves wet and if it does, blow any water that’s trapped in the rosettes. Once warm days and cool nights begin, give them a diluted dose of fertilizer. 

Soil

For soil, go for something quick draining. The soil is very important for the growth of the concrete leaf, which must be loose and ventilated.  

Hardiness

Titanopsis Calcarea is hardy to USDA zones 9a to 11b. With minimum to zero resistance to extremely cold weather, the succulent has a first tolerance of -6.7°C.

Light

Start it off with indirect bright light and start increasing the amount of full sun it gets over the course of a week or two. The brighter the light, the better the colours on the leaves.

Propagation

The Titanopsis Calcarea propagation is usually carried out by seeds or the division of larger clumps. Ideally, take off the new clumps in spring. 

This species' name, Titanopsis Calcarea, means “that looks like limestone”. It refers to the bluish, oddly dotted leaves, that can remind some of the calcareous pebbles.
