F. tigrina is a small yet attractive-looking blooming succulent. It is a popular houseplant that is both exotic and easy to grow, even for beginners.
The plant has gray-green leaves dotted with white spots, characteristic toothed formations that make them look like open jaws, and yellow flowers. Faucaria tigrina grows in South Africa (namely, the Eastern Cape) mainly in open, rocky areas, in dark clay soil with low pH. Most people use the common name tiger jaws.
