South Africa


Synonym: Cotyledon filicaulis
Family: Crassulaceae

Small plant with thick squat branches, and succulent oblong spotted leaves. Large plants can produce a very fat succulent base that could be considered a caudex.

Found in the Richtersveld of South Africa, growing among weathered granite exposed to the harsh sun.

This is a relatively slow growing plant that does well outdoors in full sun, and planted in extremely well draining inorganic media. It is from a transitionary rainfall region so it should receive moderate water throughout the year (about once every one to two weeks in the summer, and less in the winter) always being allowed to dry out completely between waterings.
