This succulent originates in South Africa, particularly in the Cape Province. It may also be referred to by the name Nananthus Luckofii or Titanopsis Luckhofii.
Aloinopsis Luckhoffii Features
It’s a little succulent that grows close together, forming a thick mat of clustered rosettes. The stem is super short, and you can’t even see the spaces between the leaves. The leaves are about two centimeters long when they’re fully grown. They’re pretty thick, start off narrow at the bottom, and get wider at the top, making a triangle shape. The edges of the leaves have evenly spaced pink bumps.
When the flowers bloom, they look like daisies and feel soft. They can be yellow, pink, or a mix of yellow and bronze. The flowers are enormous compared to the plant’s small leaves. The plant has roots like potatoes and a big main root, so it’s best to plant it in a deep pot.

Aloinopsis Luckhoffii Care
Temperatures: Taking care of this plant is easy, and you get a lot of joy because it stays pretty. In warm places, you can plant it right in the ground. But if it’s cold where you live, use a pot. When it gets really cold (below 5°C), bring it inside. It can handle dry winters and go as low as -12°C.
Watering: This plant takes a nap in summer, so you don’t need to give it as much water then. But you can water it throughout the year, just a bit less in summer and winter. Don’t stress too much about how much water – wait until the soil is dry before watering again.
Soil: Use soil that lets water flow through easily to keep the roots from getting too wet and rotting.
Light: In the summer, it’s best to put this plant in a spot that gets some shade but still has plenty of light. During other seasons, it can handle direct sunlight. If it doesn’t get enough light, it might grow slowly or look a bit weird.
Fertilizer: You can make it extra happy by using fertilizer with more potash and a little bit of nitrogen. If you’re unsure about mixing fertilizers, a ready-made cactus fertilizer will do the trick and save you the hassle.
DO YOU KNOW? Caring (propagating, pruning/trimming, beheading, watering, …) is a set of skills that is widely applicable to succulents. Read the in-depth guide here >>Richard Miller – Succulent City
Propagation, Repotting & Common Problems
You can propagate it from seeds or stem cuttings. It clumps prolifically, so getting the cuttings you need isn’t difficult. You may need to repot it occasionally to accommodate the growing tap root. Also, you can repot it if the substrate becomes less porous to ensure the plant remains healthy. Root rot is the most common disease, but you can keep it at bay by watering it appropriately and planting it in well-drained soil. Mealybugs, scales, and red spiders are the most common pets. Treat them using organic pesticides.
