Description

Pleiospilos Nelii  is a small clump forming stemless, perennial ,leaf succulent nearly spherical vaguely reminding for a Lithops. Mesembs can reach a height of up to 8 cm and a diameter of up to 10 cm. The leaves have a deep fissure in the middle and are usually rose to purple in color with many conspicuous raised dark dots scattered over the whole surface. A new pair of leaves is produced each year.

This cultivar has a deep rose flowers with a white center. They are daisy-like, up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter and emerge from the center of the leaves. The flowers open in mid-afternoon and close just after sunset.

Environment

They grow in arid desert-like regions that get very little rainfall . They love sun so make sure they are in a south-facing window and when summer rolls around, let them get plenty of filtered light outdoors,plenty of ventilation and protect from rain.

Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings . Hold back water during the hottest weeks of summer and also in the dead of winter. Since the split rock has such a long tap root,the pot should be at least 3.5-4 deep. Proper drainage is a must so make sure the pot has a hole in the bottom.

Mesembs require a loam-based compost with the addition of extra drainage material such as horticultural grit or perlite.

Landscape Use

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.
