The thick, pointed leaves with barbed ‘teeth’ lining their edges – hence the common name – and while they may look dangerous, they are actually quite soft. The leaves layer upon each other with nice, upright form. They are light green, but will blush purple with a lot of sunlight. Good potted plants for indoors or out.
Bright yellow flowers with narrow petals bloom from the centre of mature plants in autumn and winter. To achieve blooms they need good light during the summer. Offsets will form naturally from the base of the plant.
Faucaria are rarely bothered by pests and require no fuss. Their swollen leaves are designed to store water, this enables them to withstands long, dry periods. Ensure good drainage and a filtered light to full sun position. In full sun they will need more water.
Faucaria is commonly known as Tiger’s Jaws or Shark’s Jaws.
