General Care for Fenestraria rhopalophylla “Baby Toes”
“Baby Toes” has windowed leaves, similar to Lithops. The transparent area at the top of the plant has no green pigment, allowing light to pass through.
Fenestraria rhopalophylla “Baby Toes” has typical watering needs for a succulent during its active growing period. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between watering.
“Baby Toes” is dormant in the heat of the summer. It’s important not to water during this time, as doing so could cause root rot.
Where to Plant
Fenestraria is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).
