Faucaria is a genus of around 33 species of succulent subtropical flowering plants of the family Aizoaceae. The name comes from the Latin word fauces (“animal mouth”) because of the appearance of "teeth" on the leaves.

Faucaria species are native to the Cape Province of South Africa and the Karoo Desert.

Cultivation

Put the plants in small pots with a well-drained soil. In a very sunny exposure and if possible outside in summer.

Moderate watering in summer and not at all in winter for the plant is a rest period without which it can not flourish.

Division of clumps is the easiest way for reproduction. It can also be done by cutting (with a minimum temperature of 21 °C) or by seeding.
