ABOUT THE PLANT
Pleiospilos nelii, commonly known as "split rock" or "living rock," is a succulent plant native to the arid regions of South Africa. It is closely related to Lithops and is a member of the Aizoaceae family. Pleiospilos nelii is known for its unique appearance, which resembles a split or partially buried stone. Here are some key details about Pleiospilos nelii:
Pleiospilos nelii is a small, low-growing succulent plant with pairs of thick, fleshy leaves that are fused together, forming a cleft or cleft-like appearance, which resembles a rock split in two. The top surface of the leaves is often textured and patterned, making them look like stones or pebbles. The plant typically remains quite small, with the leaves growing up to 2 inches (5 cm) in height.
Similar to Lithops, Pleiospilos nelii is adapted to arid and semi-arid environments. In its native habitat, it grows in rocky or sandy soils with excellent drainage. To successfully cultivate Pleiospilos nelii, it's important to provide well-draining soil, bright and direct sunlight, and a watering regimen that mimics its natural habitat.
Care and Maintenance:
Pleiospilos nelii requires minimal care but specific attention to its unique needs. It prefers full sun exposure for several hours each day and thrives in conditions with plenty of sunlight. As with other succulents, it is important to allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings to prevent overwatering, which can lead to rot. Like Lithops, Pleiospilos nelii goes through a dormant period in summer, during which it should be kept dry.
