“Adromischus” Genus

Adromischus Genus Image

This genus is native to southern Africa in South Africa and Namibia. It is among the minor genera since it comprises only twenty-nine species. The genus was first described by the naturalist Lamaire in 1852. Adromichus is derived from two Greek words: ‘adros’ and ‘mischus’, which mean thick and stem, respectively. Plants in this genus usually have small clumping leaves, which are its main attraction. Also, many of the species in this genus have colored leaves, making them stand out more among many species; they need to be grown under intensive light to facilitate this change in foliage color.
