Description:

Fenestraria or "Baby Toes" are unusual plants. They originate from the deserts of South Africa and belong to the large family of Aizoaceae. These varieties includes plants known as "Mimicry" plants for their ability to camouflage with their environment. Fenestraria have finger-like leaves in upright clusters. On each "finger" it has a translucent window, and it is through this window that the strong sunlight is filtered to enable photosynthesis. In a habitat like the desert it is very often only these windows that are visible above the sand. "Baby Toes" prefers a soil with less organic material but more gritty fill like gravel, pumice or perlite. Substances like these provide excellent drainage essential to this type of plant. Make sure to provide it with bright light to prevent stretching of the succulent leaves. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Fenestra will not tolerate water-logged soils. It is somewhat frost tolerant, but protection is good to prevent scarring. In late summer through fall "Baby Toes" will bloom profusely, offering bright 2-inch yellow, daisy-like flowers.
