The fleshy green foliage has decorative mahogany spots and a silver sheen formed by tiny hairs. The narrow flower stem can grow up to 50cm tall and has small, red and cream tubular blooms.
Mature plants will build up a large caudex at the base. Adromeishcus make great house and patio plants. They are easy care so great for beginners.
Adromischus is a rare and beautiful member of the Crassulaceae family. They are easy to grow and thrive in pots or sharply drained soils. In pots use a cactus/succulent potting mix. Grow in part shade or shelter from the hot afternoon sun. Water in, then water only as the soil dries out – too much water may cause them to rot. They are sensitive to frost, so best grown in pots in cool climes. Add a diluted fertiliser that is low in nitrogen in summer. They like good air flow.
