  •  Fenestraria or "Baby Toes" are unusual plants. They originate from the deserts of South Africa and belong to the large family of Aizoaceae. These varieties includes plants known as "Mimicry" plants for their ability to camouflage with their environment.

     Fenestraria have finger-like leaves in upright clusters. On each "finger" it has a translucent window, and it is through this window that the strong sunlight is filtered to enable photosynthesis. In a habitat like the desert it is very often only these windows that are visible above the sand.

      In late summer through fall "Baby Toes" will bloom profusely, offering bright 2-inch yellow, daisy-like flowers.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root

  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Sent a selection of these succulent beauties to my daughter for her birthday and she LOVES them. All arrived in healthy condition and are thriving in their new Long Beach home. Excellent service, selection and shipping.

Beautiful plant!

Love your plants. Hopefully I have better luck with this Fenestraria. I either neglect them too much or love them too much. So far so good!
