The charming Baby Toes (Fenestraria rhopalophylla) succulent, also known as window plant, features densely packed clusters of club-like leaves that are reminiscent of little toes. They are low maintenance and fun to watch grow. Under ideal growing conditions, Baby Toes plants can produce white or yellow flowers. Interestingly, the active growing period for this succulent is during the fall, winter and spring. They are dormant during the summer months. Baby Toes is native to Namibia and South Africa. 

Best Locations For Growing Baby Toes Succulent 

Baby Toes succulent is a great addition to any collection. Place it on a windowsill, on a desk with a grow lamp, or any tight space like a shelf or side table. The best location for this succulent is near a window that receives plenty of bright sunlight. Light from a south-facing window would be ideal for this plant. Baby Toes also looks nice when planted with or placed next to other succulents and cacti. 

Baby Toes Succulent Sunlight Requirements

In order for Baby Toes to thrive, provide the plant with plenty of bright light. This plant requires a minimum of six to eight hours of bright light for vigorous growth. Baby Toes prefers a spot near a south-facing window in order to receive the brightest light.  

Baby Toes Succulent Care

Use a sandy, well-draining potting mix for Baby Toes. You can blend a succulent soil yourself by mixing equal parts pumice, perlite, coarse sand, and potting soil. This type of soil will allow the plant to dry out more quickly. These plants appreciate dry, hot climates.

Watering Baby Toes Succulent 

Only water this drought-tolerant plant if the soil is completely dry. You can tell if your Baby Toes needs water if you see the tips of the leaves getting wrinkly. When you see wrinkles, give your plant a long drink of water until you see drips coming out of the pot’s drainage hole. These plants are dormant in the summer, so water them sparingly during this time.

Feeding Baby Toes Succulent 

Baby Toes succulents are sensitive to over-fertilization. Although they don’t require regular fertilization, you can fertilize them during their growing season with a balanced fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength to help encourage strong growth. The active growing period for Baby Toes is fall through spring.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
