Pleiospilos Simulans Split Rock Plant is an intriguing succulent originating from South Africa where it once grew in rock crevices in the Aberdeen region. Unfortunately, due to aggressive harvesting by succulent collectors, Pleiospilos Simulans Split Rock Plant, also known as the liver plant or the stone plant, no longer grows in its native habitat. Pleiospilos Simulans Split Rock Plant is highly sought after because of its small triangular leaves that can resemble a rock, with the newly emerging leaves (when clumped together) resembling a split rock. As the plants mature, they produce a finely-cut and scented, yellow daisy like flower (not dissimilar to a Livingstone Daisy) which can be 6cm in diameter, which is a pretty impressive flower to plant size ratio. Pleiospilos Simulans Split Rock Plant is ideally grown in pots with a free draining mix high in sand, but will also grow in rockeries and a wide range of gardens, and like all succulents is very drought tolerant, making it a favourite for pots and sun-drenched garden beds. The stunningly exotic dusted-silver foliage make this variety a great addition to any garden as the intriguing texture provides great contrast. At The Climbing Fig, we believe in conservation through cultivation, so why not consider growing this stunning succulent variety, and ensure this valuable biodiversity is conserved. The seeds of Pleiospilos Simulans Split Rock Plant we have on offer have been sustainably sourced, and we look forward to helping other keen gardeners to share the joy of growing this fascinating plant.
