Description

Faucaria tigrina is a small succulent clamp-forming perennial, up to 6 inches tall. Tiger's Jaw is a very handsome plants with soft white teeth along the edges. The spines that edge the pairs of speckled leaves look like the teeth of a ferocious tiger. The flowers are large, up to 2 inch in diameter, silky in shape and yellow in color.

Their low-growing habit and unusual leaves make a spectacular addition to a succulent dish garden. In the garden they slowly sucker growing in a circle larger and larger until they come up upon another plant making a unique carpet of plant completely covering the ground.

Landscape Uses

Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
