When a plant is named ‘Baby Toes’ (Fenestraria aurantiaca), it is guaranteed to be adorable! Their tiny, tightly packed club-like leaves look like many little toes poking out of the soil - it may sound a little creepy, but it's seriously cute (just trust us)! Plus, in summer, stunning yellow-white flowers appear from the middle of the clumps, taking this baby to the next level! Baby toes' certainly live up to the hype and are a must have for your indoor succulent oasis.
