English

This particular variety gets its field number from Steven Brack, who discovered it near the Groot Namaland River in Namibia.

It is the only species of this genus, which takes its name from the Latin "lapidem", meaning stone: this specimen is in fact similar to stone both in terms of its shape and the marble color that distinguishes it.

Moreover, in nature it tends to grow in rocky soils, right in the middle of the stones, with which it almost camouflages itself.It is a dwarf succulent that has stem and branches hidden under the leaves, which are large and squat, with a triangular section, almost resting on each other and with a typical marble color that tends to lighten even more in the sun.

Quite often this plant is also cultivated for its showy inflorescences: in spring, in fact, graceful yellow-orange daisy-like flowers bloom, which sometimes, due to their size, cover the entire plant.



Care

  • It requires an exposure to full sun. However, it can be placed in a partially shaded area only if it still receives a lot of light throughout the year.
  • It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 4 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.
  • Water moderately in spring and autumn but only when the soil is completely dry, reduce it to once every two months in summer and suspend watering completely in winter.
  • The best soil is a substrate suitable for succulents, as long as it is well draining and prevents rotting.
  • They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
