Pleiospilos nelii - Split Rock

$ 5.50

Pleiospilos nelii, also known as “Split Rock”, is a stemless succulent with 2 to 4 opposite, almost hemispherical, gray-green leaves. Though it is a tiny plant, its unique look ensures it stands out – an incredible example of mimicry, it shows striking resemblance to the rocks it grows among in nature. When Pleiospilos nelii blooms, a leaf divides to reveal a gradually opening flower bud. Its flowers can be spectacular, usually resembling tiny daisies and appearing in a range of colors.


• Light: Bright diffused to direct light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Let soil completely dry between waterings
• Considerations: Water when leaves appear wrinkled or shrunken.
Use a well-draining cactus/succulent soil, and select a planter with drainage


You'll get a healthy Pleiospilos nelii that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 1.5" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

The cutest little split rock

When my plant I arrived I was so excited. It was packaged well, no soil lost, and it had little white rocks that gave a cute bit of decor. I’m happy with this purchase. It’s not my first and won’t be my last. Thank you Pistils Nursery
