About Fenestraria Rhopalophylla / Baby Toes(4 inches)


Fenestraria Rhopalophylla, commonly known as Baby Toes, is a succulent plant belonging to the Aizoaceae family and Fenestraria genus. F. Rhopalophylla is recognized for its fleshy, cylindrical-shaped green leaves with transparent tips, allowing light to penetrate the leaves to aid photosynthesis. The plant forms a compact clump of rosettes that stay relatively small, growing to a height of about 2 inches. During the flowering season, late winter or early spring, the plant produces small, daisy-like white or yellow flowers that emerge from the center of the rosette. This plant is a popular choice for rock gardens, popular as a houseplant due to its unique appearance, and it is known for its unusual leaf shape and texture, which resemble a baby's tiny toes.

How to care for Fenestraria Rhopalophylla / Baby Toes


Sun/Location: Like most soft succulents, Baby Toes prefer bright, indirect light or partial shade. Place F. Rhopalophylla in a location where it can receive four to six hours of indirect sunlight per day, such as an east or west-facing window. Direct sunlight harms the succulent plant and causes sunburn or scorch marks on the leaves. Provide shade cloth or protection during the hottest part of hot summer months or areas. Wrap cute baby succulents with horticultural fleece or a hessian blanket to keep frost in harsh winter.

Soil/Pot: F. Rhopalophylla requires a well-draining succulent soil mix that is slightly sandy and with good drainage capacity. Blend coarse sand, potting soil, and perlite or pumice into potting soil at a 1:1:1 ratio. Repot when it outgrows the current container. When repotting, remove any dead or damaged roots to prevent fungal diseases.

Watering: F. Rhopalophylla, like most succulent plants, has low to moderate watering needs. Let the potting soil dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. F. Rhopalophylla prefers to be watered from the bottom rather than above, as water droplets on the leaves can cause rot. Once watering a week during the growing season and once every two to three weeks during the dormant season is recommended. It is always better on the side of underwatering rather than overwatering.

Humidity: F. Rhopalophylla can tolerate a wide range of humidity levels but she prefers a dry, arid environment. Higher humidity levels can lead to fungal diseases and rot. Provide good air circulation around the indoor succulent to prevent moisture buildup. The plant may benefit from occasional misting if the air is too dry. Placing a bottle of water near the plant increases humidity levels in extremely dry weather. Click here to learn how humidity affects succulents.

We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Loved this baby toes. It was really nice, matched the description and surpassed my expectatios.

I was very pleased with my order. The succulents were packaged with care. I had only 2 out of the 50 where the dirt fell out of the plants. The shop replied in a timely matter to my questions and the order came quick and sooner than expected.
