|Cotyledon sinus-alexandrii, native to Africa, forms mounding clusters with a very low habit to 4" in height. Stems are shiny, with peeling papery bark and are topped with plump "egg-shaped" frosty blue-green leaves. In bright light, leaves have delicate burgundy markings.In habitat in Africa, Cotyledons usually grow in rocky quartz fields where they have excellent drainage provided by very porous soil. Best in porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring. In summer they lose leaves and look barren but they are alive just waiting for fall to start growing again.|
