Pebbled Tiger Jaws Overview
Faucaria tigrina is a small, stemless succulent, with somewhat ferocious-looking teeth on the margins of its fleshy, dark green leaves. This subspecies has rough, white tubercles scattered over the upper surface. The threadlike structures on the leaves are special adaptations that help to collect water vapour from the surrounding air and direct it down toward the roots of the plant. Flowers are bright yellow and daisy-like, around 4cm across.
