Fenestraria aurantiaca 'Fireworth '

'Baby Toes' or 'Window Plant', is a dwarf plant which form mats or small clumps in sandy soil. The leaves are flat-topped and 'windowed', with generally only the uppermost portion exposed. They possess thick, fleshy roots.


Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Because of their modest size, Fenestrarias are best grown in a pot, either by themselves or in a mixed succulent bowl. Fenestraria prefer sandy soil and should be watered sparingly at all times to avoid root rot and split leaves. Mix equals parts potting soil with pumice or perlite. Outdoors, grow in full to part sun; indoors, provide bright indirect light.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

They are usually propagated by seed but sometimes by cuttings. Like many succulents, Fenestrarias produces offsets as the clusters of leaves mature and spread. These are easy to divide from the main clump and will readily produce another plant. The seeds from the plant germinate sporadically and grow extremely slowly. Faster Fenestrarias are achieved by dividing off the side growth.
