Adromiscus ID request

Post by Paul in Essex » Fri Sep 14, 2018 11:02 am

Could someone please identify this adromiscus? I got it without a name and it has sat quite happily in a rock crevice outside for around 3 years now. Thanks!

Has anyone else grown Adromischus outdoors? I'm wondering if they'll just survive in sheltered spots or if they'd be worth trying.

one of the most resistant is Adromischus cooperi which in nature grows in corners where there is frost (Nieu Bethesda for example)
and also cristatus around Graaf Reinet
but the problem is always the same in our countries: humidity (td)

I do have A. cooperi outside, too - again, in a fairly sheltered rock crevice like this one - for some years. I shall look out for cristatus, so thank you for the suggestion!

I like to experiment with all sorts of little succulents that can normally be bought cheaply. Have great success with Faucaria, for example, of which I have 3 or 4 types growing quite happily. Somewhere I have a picture of F. tigrina flowering in the snow :smile:

I'm struggling to keep my Faucarias free from mealy bug so I might try some outside next year.
