Adromishus species

ADROMISCHUS SPECIES

It has at least 28 species of small clumping leaf succulents from South Africa. The attractively marked and colored leaves, oddly shaped, of many species appeal to collectors but require high light levels for the different colors to be seen to full advantage. In shade, most species adopt a similar green color. Generally, small upright flowers, common colors are white to pink to lavender with fused petals.
They require a well-drained mix and a dry atmosphere. It grows best in part shade. Water mostly in Summer/Autumn and let them dry out between watering. Keep drier in winter. Prone to mealybugs. Frost hardy and tolerate cool but best to give them a frost-free condition during the winter period if kept dry. Sheltered environment and especially out of the rain to control how much water they should receive.
