Split Rock, also known as Twin Peaks, is a mountain in the Granite Mountains of central Wyoming. The peak has an elevation of 7,305 feet (2,227 m), and is located about 10 miles (16 km) north of the Muddy Gap junction between Casper and Rawlins. The mountain is distinctive for a deep V-shaped cleft dividing its summit.
If the plant gets more water during the regeneration season, it might keep the old pair of leaves. Split Rock succulents grow to 2-5 inches (5-13 cm) in height and 3-4 inched (10 cm) across. Their flowers are quite spectacular – colorful, large, daisy-like, with a coconut smell.
They need rapidly draining mineral soil (80% mineral grit, 20% organic soil) and a deep pot with a drainage hole. Plants can be watered deeply in spring and fall, but only if the soil is dry and the inner leaf pair is starting to wrinkle or go soft.
