TROPICA - Tiger’s Jaw (Faucaria trigrina) - 40 Seeds
Worth knowing: The Tiger’s Jaw is a water-storing succulent and with a height of 8 to 10 cm it remains relatively short in size. The serrated leaves resemble torn open predator jaws. Its bright, golden-yellow flowers appear during August/September.
Origin: Semi-deserts of South Africa (Eastern Cape).
Propagation: Seeds can be started indoors at any time throughout the year. Mix fine ground cultivation soil with about 25 % of fine sand (silica sand works best). In order to guarantee that the seeds will not fall through the soil, the soil mixture should not be too coarse. Moisten the mixture with a water vaporiser and sprinkle the fine seeds on the soil. All cacti are light germinators, therefore the seeds should be left uncovered. Sufficient warmth (16 to 25°C) and high humidity are crucial now. Every seed tray should be covered with foil or a glass plate and should be aired for about 2 hours every 2–3 days.
Place / Light: The Tiger’s Jaw enjoys lots of sun and may be placed on windowsills facing South, East or West.
Care: Water only after the substratum has dried out. Young plants should generally be kept a little moister. Rain water and water free of lime are ideal. A surplus of water should be poured out in order to avoid standing water and root rotting. Since it contains less nitrogen than other fertilizers, the plant should be supplied with liquid cactus fertilizer from May until beginning of August.
Winter period: Water only every 3 to 4 weeks from October on and choose a location with surrounding temperatures of 14° to 16°C.
Bonsai Suitability: No
