Titanopsis calcarea - Concrete Leaf Living Stone

Titanopsis calcarea is a rare, mat-forming, impressive succulent that is also known by various names: Concrete Leaf, Jewel Weed, Carpet Leaf, Sheep’s Tongue, or Living Stone.

 

It forms rosettes up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter. These rosettes consist of fleshy grey green leaves with plenty of rough white grey tubercles concentrated at the tips.

 

Concrete Leaf produces yellow or orange flowers of about 0.8 inch (2 cm) in diameter. It usually becomes dormant or semi-dormant during the hottest summer months.

 

  • Nursery pot size: 8cm
  • Height (approx.): 12cm

 

Fancy a lovely pot to put this beauty in? Here is our collection of pots which fit 8cm to 11cm nursery pots.

 

  • Light: Full sun and bright indirect light.
  • Watering: In the spring and autumn, water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Water less frequently in the winter, only enough to prevent the leaves from shriveling. Reduce watering to a minimum during its dormancy in the summer to avoid root rot. If you notice the leaves starting to get floppy or going translucent and a sickly colour then it’s sign of over-watering. Try to avoid the leafs getting wet.
  • Temperature: Prefers warmer room temperatures.
  • Pets: Not troublesome.

 

Note: All our plants are unique, the plant you receive might not be identical to the one photographed but we're sure you're going to love it either way!
