Split Rock

  • Details
  • Native to arid regions of South Africa, this egg-shaped succulent has two leaves with a cleft down the center. New leaf pairs grow up between the cleft. It is important to never let more than two pairs of leaves grow on the plant at a time; any more and it will rot from having too much water stored inside the plant. This plant may produce orange blooms that open mid-afternoon and close by dusk.

    Only water when totally dry and the plant begins to shrivel. (About a tablespoon of water once a quarter, or less.) If more than two pairs of leaves appear on one stack, stop watering altogether until the outer leaves shrivel up and fall off.
