Carruanthus peersii is a ground covering succulent in the ice plant family, Aizoaceae. C. peersii is native to South Africa where it is found growing on cliff sides. Carruanthus peersii is a small rosette-like succulent that has two sets of pale green leaves stacked on top of eachother that usually does not measure more than 6 inches in height and 4 inches in width. Each leaf also has distinctive teeth-like bumps on their margin that turn reddish pink with intense sun exposure. Carruanthus peersii blooms from the spring to summer with bright yellow flowers that resemble dandelions. This species is grown as an ornamental plant for its ground cover growth habit and bright flowers. C. peersii grows best in full sun to partial shade, sitting in well-draining soils. Water the plant adequately during summer and sparingly during the winter. It is a drought-tolerant species and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 10a to 11b.

Carruanthus peersii seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 70°F to 80°F. Germination typically takes 1 to 3 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
