This member of the family Aizoaceae consists of 21 species. It naturally occurs in South Africa. The name derives from the Latin word that means gibbous like the moon. This name is because its leaves appear to be a series of gibbous as the plant grows. Some of the leaves are more elongated than others depending on the species but they all have a gibbous shape to varying degrees.
Plants in this genus are small, they may be considered to be dwarf succulents and they have a certain ornamental allure due to size and shape. The growth of these leaves is not always orderly as it is possible to find some of them facing upward while others tend to one direction or the other. These swollen leaves have a more or less similar pale green hue. They often don’t have stems and if they have them, they are very small. Their flowers are white or pink and they look like daisies.
Gibbaeum Plants On Succulent City
Richard | Editor-in-chief at Succulent City
Hey everyone! I’m Richard. Welcome to my blog, which is all about succulents, cacti, and a bit about air plants. Ten years back, in 2013, I began my journey with succulents. It started as a simple hobby, crafting and selling charming succulent-themed pins and decorations. But as time passed, my fascination with these remarkable plants grew, and I gained extensive knowledge about them. Therefore, Succulent City is the blog as you see it is now. Enjoy your visit and happly planting!
