    Description

Titanopsis calcarea - Living Stones

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds of this charming species of mimicry 'mesemb'.

It is a low growing mat forming succulent plant from South Africa. Each body never exceeds 5 cm across, but individual clumps can contain many hundreds of heads in an older plant.  The leaves are club shaped and have tubercles at the tips, which with the colouring makes it blend into the stony habitat it naturally grows in. It flowers in the early autumn, the flower being daisy like and yellow through orange. They only open fully in the sun and may be followed by a fleshy seed capsule.

It prefers an alkaline soil (one with chalk in it) as this best mimics the soil of its habitat. It requires little water in the summer and none at all when it is resting during the winter months. Said to be hardy in Zones 5 and up, but I would not want to put this to the test.  If grown anywhere there is frost, it will need to be bone dry at the roots and in a very free draining soil with protection from winter wet.  As with all succulents it is not solely cold that kills, moreover it is cold and wet combined.
