Adromischus filicaulis


Adromischus filicaulis grow on rocky granitic hills in high altitudes. To mimic this microclimate at home, we can provide them with a gritty well drained potting mix and an arid environment. These low-lying plants are slow growing and have shiny grey green leaves with reddish rust colored spots. This plant is highly variable.

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 western South Africa.


Give Adromischus filicaulis plenty of direct sun with partial shade during the harshest afternoon hours. It will not tolerate full shade.


Adromischus filicaulis are drought tolerant plants that store a lot of water in their succulent leaves. Water when the soil dries out in the summer and only infrequently during the winter. It's best to allow the soil to dry out entirely before watering thoroughly. 

Tula's Tip

This plant loves to be root bound. Once established in a deep pot, they will be happy there for several years. Repot once every two to three years. Fertilize: These plants do not require fertilizer though it can be added to give container grown plants a boost or to supplement poor soil. Apply a water-soluble, balanced fertilizer monthly, diluted at half strength.


Approx. 3-4" tall and 3-4" wide. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
