Grenovia is a succulent plant native to the Canary Islands, with fleshy stems ending in cup-shaped rosettes up to 40 cm in diameter. The leaves are spatula-shaped with a rounded apex and a bright blue-green colour.

In the summer season the rosettes close as the plant goes dormant. The flowers are yellow in colour and are borne at the end of a long stalk. They usually flower from mid-spring to early summer.

They can be used to form rockeries with cacti and succulents and in pots on balconies and terraces.

Grenovias need full sun exposure and prefer average temperatures between 10-20°C. They can withstand winter frosts. They can withstand winter frosts if not watered in the cold season.

The soil for these plants can be commercial cactus compost. They do not usually need transplanting. Watering should be abundant in late autumn and early spring. The rest of the year it should be watered moderately.

It is advisable to fertilise it every 15 days with a mineral fertiliser for cacti during the flowering period.

Watch out for over-watering as it can cause fungal diseases (fungus), as well as being a victim of whitefly and mealybug.

The fastest method of propagation is from the rosettes produced by the mother plant.
