Cheiridopsis - Pillansii

Cheiridopsis - Pillansii


Cheridopsis pillansii is a small, mat-forming succulent with very short stems that bear only 2 or 4 leaves. The fleshy leaves are pale grey, smooth, with rounded ends and many dark dots (translucent in backlight) and each up to 1.8 inches (4.5 cm) long. The new leaves are shaped like a pair of cupped hands and appear from within the old leaf pair fissure, which gives the impression of the plant having sets of alternate appressed leaves. Flowers are scented, usually yellow but also pinkish or orange, up to 2.4 inches (6 cm) in diameter, and appear in fall. The basics of care are very simple: free-draining soil, plenty of sun and ventilation, and regular light watering in the right season.
