Titanopsis calcarea

I was having some problems posting tonight, which apparently others were having also, but it seems to be fixed. This is another plant which is flowering, Titanopsis calcarea. I've always liked this warty little plant, and the flowers just add to it's charm.
Too late to write much right now, but more tomorrow.


  1. I like these plants a lot, they look like they've got jewels on their leaves, very beautiful :)

    I have two of them and they have flower buds at the moment, which are growing so slow that i think they won't open at all this year

  2. Hi Rika,
    Yes, I know what you mean. Our philosophy: Ignore them, pretend they're not there, and then ... surprise!
    Hope your studies are going well.

  3. so true! :)
    thank you! i'm in the final phase now, exams coming up, degree paper research. things like taking care of lithops give a welcome variety :)

    can you tell me if it's okay to water the titanopsis now? i mean, in winter and while the flower grows..
