Aloinopsis schooneesii - Mounding Mesemb
Aloinopsis schooneesii is a mounding succulent from Southern Africa that looks like a pile of rocks—that is, until it blooms. Succulent plants that look like rocks are often called "Living Stones" or "Mesembs," named after the genus Mesembryanthemum that is full of rock-like plants. Many are familiar with the flat mesemb Lithops.
Aloinopsis schooneesii grows a large taproot that can be exposed and shown off like a caudex.
• Light: Bright light. Some direct sun preferred.
• Water: Drought tolerant. Let soil dry between waterings. Reduce watering in winter.
• Considerations: Use a well-draining cactus/succulent soil, and select a planter with drainage. Although this plant is a winter grower, take care not to overwater in winter.
