Pleiospilos Nelii (Split Rock)

Pleiospilos nelii (plee-oh-SPIL-os), also known as the Split Rock, is a flowering perennial succulent plant hailing from South Africa.

  • The genus Pleiospilos plant name comes from two Greek words: first ‘pleios’, means many and the second part, ‘spilos’ means spot.
  • It is a member of the Aizoaceae (ay-zoh-AY-see-ee) family and often confused with Lithops (living stones).
  • Also known as Cleft Stone, Mimicry Plant.
  • This stemless plant has 2 or 4, opposite, almost hemispherical, grey-green or brownish leaves.
  • It likes lots of light and warm temperatures.
  • It does best indoors in a south-facing window in winter.
  • In the summertime, allow Pleiospilos to enjoy bright outdoor light.
  • Protect it against a very harsh afternoon full sun.
  • These plants need little water so water sparingly.
  • Water the plant allowing the potting mix to become moist and until it runs through the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot just like any other cacti.
  • Do not water again until the potting soil becomes completely dry and the plant begins to wither a bit.
  • The size of the plant allows them to naturally among pebbles, sandstone, and quartz gravel, and require an exceptionally sharp well-draining soil.
  • Avoid organic material in the soil mix.
  • A mixture of one part succulents potting soil and three parts pumice works well.
