Adromischus marianiae herrei


Adromischus marianiae herrei 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.

Please note: Every plant will vary in size, color and shape from the one pictured. Planter is not included. Plant ships bare root.


Native to South Africa.


Give Adromischus marianae plenty of direct sun with partial shade during the harshest afternoon hours. It will not tolerate full shade. They thrive in morning or late afternoon sun. If possible give them a spot in a sill with south-eastern or south-western exposure.


This plant is low-maintenance from a watering standpoint. Its semi-spherical succulent leaves retain plenty of moisture, so be sure to let the soil dry out completely between waterings. When you do water, water thoroughly, fully saturating the soil.
