Faucaria candidaFaucaria albidens
The name Faucaria is derived from the Latin word for jaw - a fair description of the toothed leaves of most species of these plants from the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Generally speaking Faucarias present few problems in cultivation and are free flowering, usually with yellow flowers - the exception being F. candida which has white flowers.
