Synonym: A. marianae var. immaculatus
Small plant with thick squat branches, and extremely unique lumpy red leaves. Large plants can produce a very fat succulent base that could be considered a caudex.
Found in Little Namaqualand, South Africa, growing between granite rocks.
This is a relatively slow growing plant that does well outdoors in part sun. This plant is extremely rot prone without adequate air circulation, and should be planted in extremely well draining mostly inorganic media. It is from a winter rainfall region, but can receive water throughout the year in cultivation. Should be watered about once every 2 to 3 weeks, always allowing time for the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
