Adromischus cristatus 'purple skin'
One of the most colorful and fun adromischus! The leaves have so many purple spots that they tend to cover the leaf solidly. The leaf edge stands out as a wavy light green border. New leaves show different shades as they grow in. Really love this one.
The leaves come off very easily in shipping, so it will be packed extra carefully.
Your plant will be similar to the one in the photos.

Adromischus are fairly easy plants that generally grow slowly and stay compact, so its easy to have a big collection in a small space. Plant them in well draining soil and water them after they dry out. They like lots of sun, and develop their best colors if they have enough. Some types develop a thick base known as a caudex as they age. All can be propagated easily from the leaves, just stick the end that was attached to the stem into soil and wait. It can take quite a long time, but eventually little leaves will pop up and you will have a new plant. They grow long, sometimes twisty flower stems with tiny flowers.
