Adromischus Maculatus Summary

Adromischus Maculatus Physical Characteristics

It has fibrous roots from which it grows a very short, woody stem. It is only 15 cm long and prostrate. The stem may have a few branches. This succulent’s leaves are its main attraction. They are disc-shaped, grey-green but with dark-purple spots. Spots on the leaves develop later in the plant’s life. The younger ones are plain green. The margins of the leaves can be considered horny.
