Gibbaeum Dispar Plant Description
Aptly named for its distinctly different leaves, Gibbaeum Dispar is a beautiful and unique succulent. Native to the dry regions of South Africa, this dwarf, mound-forming plant is adapted to survive in extremely xeric conditions. With its small, fleshy leaves and compact growth habit, Gibbaeum Dispar makes an excellent addition to any succulent collection or rock garden. Despite its delicate appearance, this plant is quite tough and can withstand extended periods of drought. When watering, be sure to allow the soil to dry out completely between irrigations. Protect from frost to prevent leaf damage.

Gibbaeum Dispar Water and Light Recommendations
Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.
