Titanopsis primosii

$18.00

The Titanopsis primosii is a mat forming succulent that grows amongst grey colored pebbles. It is well camouflaged in its grow environment which has proven to be a very effective strategy for escaping predators. It is a winter grower but will adapt to summer watering over time and blooms yellow flowers in early spring and mid summer. Our favorite part of this plant is the texture at the end of each stem which to us looks like elephant's feet.

Origin

Titanopsis primosii is native to Southern Namibia.

Sun

These senecio prefer lots of sun, especially to keep their upright structure. At least five hours of direct sun is ideal. Indoors a south facing window is great. Outdoors, place them in a spot where they will get plenty of sun exposure. If you are growing this plant outdoors be sure to provide it with light shade to protect it from intense, peak afternoon sun.

Water

Titanopsis primosii needs moderate water when growing in late fall and early spring. Keep somewhat dry in winter and summer. It will benefit from a little water in summer, enough so it does not shrivel. Over-watering will cause rot and can make the old leaves die off more quickly.

Tula's Tip

Easily propagated by separating stems at the stalk. Do so carefully and allow any cut surface to callous before reintroducing to soil. Fertilize: Fertilization of this plant is generally not necessary. If you want to refresh your soil or give your plant a boost during the growing season, you can feed it monthly with a fertilizer for cacti and succulents. Fertilize only during the spring and summer, when the plant is actively growing.

Size

Approx. 5-6" tall x 3-4" at the widest point. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
