Flowers of this succulent are small and daisy-like, with yellow to orangish colors that last several days and fade to a darker tone as they age. This plant blooms in the mid-winter.
Watering and Feeding
Jewel plants, when growing in the late fall and early spring, require a moderate amount of water. The rest of the time, remember to keep them dry. It is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer once a year with watering.
These succulents require a sandy substrate that contains little organic material. They are a winter grower and therefore should be kept dry in the summer.
Titanopsis Hugo Schlechteri is a winter grower that should be kept relatively dry in summer due to its frost tolerance of -10° C (14° F) and hardiness zone of 10a to 11b.
This variety of Titanopsis requires bright shade sun exposure in summer. They need full sun to partial shade in other seasons.
The little Jewel succulent is easy-to-grow and clumps easily. The clumps can be divided for further plant propagation.
