Faucaria tuberculosa


Faucaria tuberculosa is known as pebbled tiger jaws with extra projections across the leaf surface joining the serrated edges.

Faucaria tuberculosa is known as pebbled tiger jaws. Its opposite leaves are toothed on the edges and have raised projections across the leaf making it look like a very toothy specimen. It is related to F. tigrina which has a smoother leaf surface. Yellow, star-like flowers reveal its relationship to the ice plants (Delosperma). Protect indoors in winter or as a houseplant year round.
