Faucaria - Tigers Jaws Succulent Varieties & Care - Includes F. Tigrina, F. Candida, F. Tuberculosa


In this video we’re looking at Faucaria species and this is a genus that’s recently been renamed so from 30 species that’s gone down to six species with a number of subspecies, so the naming can be a little bit confused so over to James Lucas from Succulents, Australia. This is a Faucaria tigrina. And you can make a mistake with those names and slip occasionally, and there are several forms of it. But this is the water one, and you see the warts growing here, but later on, I’m gonna show you absolutely super warty one. It’s a new import for us from Japan. This one’s Faucaria Nana. You can see how small it is very tiny. This is Faucaria Tuberculosa Tigrina, But it has a bit more marking on it and a bit more spines on the edges and this is coming into flower. This is a plainer Faucaria, and we’ve just bright yellow flower, so we call this a Faucaria yellow and it’s more plain leaf with really nice, fine teeth on it. This one is a really cute one quite rare, really seen. Faucaria Candida has a really lovely white flower and there’s a flower ages a little bit. It gets a little bit of a pink tinge to it, and it really is a very pretty plant, all right. The sort of saw mix we’ve got that is in these are easy to grow plant. They really are, and they’re tough as nails. They actually grow really from autumn. The first autumn rains in Africa, they start to grow again and through the winter and in spring, but they really go dormant in summer and you can really dry them out hard in summer, but this is the mix. They’re in, lets. Lift this out. Yeah, bit of gravel, and you see the good root structure and this mix drains well. This mix is designed for smaller plants. If you’re doing a bigger plant in a bigger bowl. I’d probably have a little bit more gravel in it, so the drainage is pretty good and the whole idea of growing. These is you should water it. Well in autumn winter or spring, but then let it dry right out before you think of watering it again. This is a new introduction for us. This is the super water, a new type of hybrid from Japan and have several different types of warts on them, but this is. These are just babies. They’re just starting and you can see. The amount of warts on them is absolutely incredible in a minute. I’ll show you the original mother plants of these. So we call this one super warty, but these are a bigger. Faucaria, we don’t sell these. These are the mother plants where we get the offsets to make the cuttings for all the new little ones that you just saw in the other house. See, the multiplication rate isn’t really huge when your door from cuttings, It’s in the various forms here, Tuberculoia this one here with yellow flowers, which is the watery ones that tide grinia with the white marks on it on the leaf and there’s also the plane And this is the plain one here just you call. Plain Jane now. These are three variations of that. What we call of the super waters. This is a new introduction from Japan, and I’d never seen anything like these, but they’re so much more water than the normal water. One that we’ve had here in Australia. They’re incredible eyes, and you saw some young ones of our first lot, which won’t go on sale here soon. These are dishes that I’ve made, and I’ll plant it up and you see, these plants would be three four. Maybe in five years old. And you see, they’re doing really well. They’re really compact. You can see the candida over here is flowered out and it’s looking absolutely flowered out. It was a picture when was that hardly see the leaves the amount of flowers and head, it’s very tight and compact, and it’s actually really quite happy there in nature. These were growing crevices between rocks or things like that. There’s another Japanese introduction. This is Faucaria species. It’s it’s sort of a hybrid, but it’s got super long teeth on it, and these ones are pink pinky teeth. Yeah, they look right great over here. This is something extremely rare. They’re variegated for carrier. And you can see this one actually has an extra large flower. This is a larger flower than the other ones, but it really is. It’s a nice bra. This is the first time it’s been propagated, and we only have seven plants of this really rare one. You can see really clear white lines on markings on the line’s, long teeth, a very attractive plant. As a preview, have a look at this one, it’s called bunny ears. An amazing little plant will be back to look at that one in more detail.
