Panting Tongues

//Panting Tongues

Glottiphyllums are native to the southern parts of South Africa and are another member of the strange family of Mesembryanthemums. They are characterized by soft, strap-like leaves that look like a dog’s long, panting tongue, and have large yellow ice plant-like flowers. The plants are generally low-growing and form clumps of compact rosettes. They are considered very easy to grow and are quite tolerant of growing conditions. Over watering (while not recommended) will not kill them; rather, they will simply become more ample and fleshy. Their leaves are long, semi-transparent, and very glossy green. They are nearly stemless and often prostrate. Full sun to light shade. Drought tolerant. Hardy to USDA Zone 9, best to protect from frost.
