Karoo Rose


Lapidaria margaretae, also known as Karoo Rose, is closely related to the Aizoaceae family. Therefore, it looks quite similar to Lithops, Dinteranthus, and Schwantesia, except that Lapidaria margaretae has from two to four pairs of leaves instead of just one pair. In the fall or early winter, Karoo Rose blooms beautiful large yellow flowers up to 2 inches (5 cm) wide.

Sun exposure: Full sun to Partial sun. Put it in the shade during hot summer months.

Soil: Porous and well-drained potting mix.

Temperatures: Lapidaria margaretae prefers warm weather. It goes dormant during hot summers and cold winters. Frost tolerant to -4 ° C for short periods.

Water: Water once every one or two weeks (only when soil is dry to the touch) then let it drain completely. Do not water during its dormancy.

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. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.

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.

Karoo Rose

I love all the plants, they came heathy can't wait for my next shipment


Lovely, ship well, and seem hardy!

I received the 2" in the mail along with a few other succulents. The first thing I noticed was how hard they were-- very unique, and a good firm plant that ships VERY well. They did not come in a 2" container, but wrapped in a bit of tissue paper soil-less (maybe that's how they come, or because I had a few other succulents in the box to fit them all), but had very nice and hardy roots. There was one small scar on one of the leaves, but I don't mind. They are very healthy and I am so very happy with this purchase. I am likely to buy more in the future, and recommend this plant. I love them! :^)
