Baby Toes, Living Pebble, Fenestraria.

Fenestraria aurantiaca /  Fenestraria rhopalophylla

The seeds of Fenestraria aurantiaca / Fenestraria rhopalophylla should be sown in a well-draining soil mix with added sand or perlite. Plant the seeds just below the soil surface and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. A temperature range of 60-75�F (16-24�C) is ideal for germination, which typically takes about 2-4 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.
