Baby Toes Fenestraria

  •  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
  •  Partial Sun, Dappled Sun.

     Porous and well-drained succulent mix.

      Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch then let drain completely.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
  • 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.

Great customer service

My original order of Baby Toes arrived in poor condition, but when I notified them about it via email, the response was incredibly fast and sympathetic. They shipped out a replacement very quickly, and the new plant arrived in spectacular shape. Everything I ordered is thriving and doing quite well. I'd definitely order from them again!

They all died

I have never, ever received plants with no pots. Bare roots just don't work for me. I tried, but I don't see why you couldn't put them in little plastic pots, which cost about a nickel. Please don't contact me again.

WONDERFUL

Hi, I recently ordered off your website, and I just wanted to let you know how amazing your products are. I ordered a Moonstones Pachyphytum, a Sempervivum Red Lion, and a Baby Toes Fenestraria. They were all wonderfully packed and are healthy looking plants. I bought the baby toes as a gift for my sister's birthday. I was super impressed with how fast you guys shipped it to us in Florida. I will be buying from you guys again and be recommending you to everyone. Thank you so much.
