Adromischus filicaulis ssp. marlothii
Round emerald green leaves on compact stems. Leaves can come off easily in shipping.
Adromischus plants stay small, so its easy to keep a collection in a small space. They have a wonderful variation in leaf colors and shapes, and are very easy to propagate from leaves. These plants are hard to find, but very fun to collect.
Your plant will be similar to the one in the photos.
Let dry between watering, water deeply
Not as picky about soil, store bought succulent mix is good, especially if you add some sand or perlite/pumice to make it drain a little better
Ships in a plastic pot with soil.
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.
