Germination of

Faucaria felina

Tiger Jaws: Shark's jaw, goblin's fingers, tiger's tooth

Faucaria felina

Faucaria felina: These plants prefer well-draining soil with a mix of sand, perlite, and peat moss. Sow the seeds on the soil surface and lightly cover them with a layer of fine sand. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and place the pot in a warm, bright location. The seeds should germinate within 1-2 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
