Adromischus cristatus is aka the Crinkle-Leaf Plant. It is a slow grower from South Africa. It has 1 to 2 inch long branching stems with dense reddish aerial roots and upright triangular pale green 1 to 2 inch long by 1/2 to 1 inch wide leaves that are covered in tiny hairs. Interesting yet inconspicuous green tubular flowers have reddish white flared out petal tips on 8 inch long stems in spring. Plant in full sun in a well drained soil and water regularly to occasionally especially during the growth season from spring to fall. Hardy to 25 F. This is one of the easiest of the Adromischus to grow and can actually be grown in the ground here in coastal California, unlike others in the genus that are necessarily restricted to growing in pots. They are easily propogated as you can see in photo below. One healthy leave can create a new plant. They require bright light to look their best. Water when the soil is dry not allowing the soil to be dry for too long. I like to propagate by putting leaves on top of the soil and of course by taking cuttings.
