The name "Titanopsis" comes from the ancient Greek "titanos" (limestone) et "opsis" (looking like)
They are small plants, with rosette up to 10 cm high.
Leaves are up to 3 cm with truncate tip and rough little tubercles at the apex of the leaves. They look like limestone and are hard to be seen in the wild.
Yellow flowers with 2 cm diameter appear in late fall.
Cultivation is easy if the plants are treated like any other summer-growing succulents. The plants are calcicole (=they appreciate calcaire soils), but any typical loose succulent soil mix is suitable. The plants need well drained soil and sunny exposure. Plants should be watered mostly in summer and less over winter,
Division of larger clumps is possible in some cases, but as most species have tuberous rootstocks and offset slowly, seed production is the most common method of propagation.
