    Default Fenestraria aurantica

    A cute little succulent. We'll see how long I can succeed in keeping it alive. The flower is quite large for the size of the plant and closes each evening to reopen the following day. Not a long lasting flower -- I may get a week out of it if I'm lucky. The difference in color at the tip of each leaf, is a translucent window which allowes light to enter the leaf. In the wild, most of the plant would be buried with only the the tips exposed.

    I've seen these before but never grew them. Yours is awesome, Paul.
