Adromischus marianiae herrei 'Red Ball'
These Adromischus will certainly add texture to your succulent display! Reminiscent of coral and deep reddish purples found in desert landscapes, it makes sense that its native home lies along the river between South Africa and Namibia desert border.
It's a small but rare plant, growing 2-3 inches in diameter, with a flower that shoots up 7 to 10 inches at its peak of growth. The green and pink flowers stand out against its bumpy 'Red Ball' pinecone-like leaves.

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.
