these are about forty species of succulents originating from Africa, until 1978 they belonged to the Cotyledon genus; they have succulent stems, sometimes semi-woody in the lower part, often very branched; they are of various sizes, from a few centimeters, up to about a couple of meters, depending on the species. Some species develop a large caudex. The leaves are deciduous, succulent, fleshy, often covered by a thin hair; they are of various colors, from greenish-yellowish to bluish-green, of linear or spatulate form, often arranged in a spiral along the stems. In spring they produce a long inflorescence that brings some tubular, bell-shaped flowers, of pink or brownish-green color. Pretty easy to grow plants, generally they are very appreciated by collectors and plant lovers with caudex.


put in a luminous position, even directly exposed to sunlight for the whole year; generally they do not tolerate temperatures below 5-7 ° C, therefore during the cold months they should be kept indoors or in a temperate greenhouse.

During the vegetative period, provide fertilizer for succulent plants once a month, mixed with the water used for watering.


cultivate in very well drained soil, consisting of a high percentage of sand, even with a fairly coarse grain size.
