Where it grows

These specific plants are from north of the town of Ashton, in the Western Cape of South Africa. MBB 6952.

Special features

The North Ashton locality of Tulista marginata is quite attractive, with smooth leaf surfaces and a white, raised ridge on the leaf edges. Some individuals may also have some white tubercles (spots) on the leaves.

Care guide

Tulista marginata can handle a decent amount of light, and does best in early morning sun or under 40% shade cloth. They need a decently gritty soil mix that lets water drain freely, as they are prone to root rot. You can water them throughout the year, but they should receive less water in summer during their dormant season.

Growing season

Product FAQS

In our experience, the best time to repot a succulent is in the beginning of the growing season.

A plant with thick, fleshy tissue, designed for storing water over long periods of time.

If it's only one or two bugs, try to remove them by hand. Alternatively, spray with a pesticide or water with a systemic pesticide. We recommend RoseCare3 or RoseCarePlus, as both these are a combination pesticide and fungicide, which means they prevent insect pests and treat fungal infections.

Succulents do like fertiliser. The general rule of thumb is to fertilise in the growing season. Succulents are quite sensitive, so in our experience halving the recommended dose of general plant fertilizers works well. If it is a fertilizer formulated specifically for succulents and cacti, use the full recommended dose.

Succulents like heavy watering in the growing season, but do need to dry out between watering to avoid root rot.

No, because they are made up of mostly water, they are prone to frostbite.

It is best not to do so. This could stress the plant or burn it. Slowly introduce them by giving them a little bit more exposure each day.

It depends on the amount of sun exposure the window receives. Some succulents will be happy, but the majority will not get enough sunlight to maintain the correct shape. Alternatively, if the window receives too much light, the plant will be burned, as the window will act like a magnifying glass.
