Adromischus marianiae alveolatus
Botanical Name — Adromischus marianiae alveolatus
Common Name — Adromischus Hutchison
Plant Family — Crassulaceae
This plant is native to South Africa, where it grows in granite rock face crevices. Leaves are actually clusters of textured green sub-spherical protrusions with a notably rough surface. Low-lying, this Adromischus will remain fairly short in height, reaching only up to about 6 inches tall. Notoriously difficult to cultivate, this plant is not for the faint of heart! Nevertheless, it makes for a unique, otherworldly specimen in an arid plant collection.
• This arid plant likes high temperatures and low humidity. It will thrive in temperatures above 75°F, but avoid consistent temperatures below 45°F. Keep it indoors in a sunny windowsill during cooler months.
• Cylindrical, stalky flowers may emerge from between leaves at the beginning of a spring or summer growing season. They have green bases and sometimes reddish-hued tips.
• These plants will propagate easily by leaf cuttings, stem cuttings or division.
• This plant is most vulnerable to mealybugs and occasionally scale. Root rot can occur if it is overwatered.
Maintenance (pruning, legginess, repotting)
• These plants prefer to be root bound, so you’ll only need to repot once every two or three years.
• Adromischus marianae are known to be toxic if ingested by animals and humans. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
