Cotyledon Ladismithiensis - Bears paws
This cute little succulent has paw shaped leaves which are covered in a soft fur with colour on the edges.
Size: 11 cm heigh 6cm pot
Light: As a succulent this plant appreciates bright, indirect light. The sun's rays are intensified when passed through glass so always bear this in mind when finding a suitable spot, early morning or late afternoon sun isn't as strong so a spot that gets light as these times of day is perfect.
Water: Drought tolerant to a degree as succulents store water in their leaves. Allow top layers of soil to dry out between waterings, water less in the winter as this plant will not tolerate having cold, wet roots. Always ensure adequate drainage and never let a succulent sit in water.
Temperature: Average well regulated room temperature is fine, avoid intermittent heat/cold fluctuations to keep an even temperate environment.
Humidity: No additional humidity requirements.
Feed: A diluted succulent feed can be used from April to August, twice monthly
Care tips: Keep away from small hands and paws as this plant is mildly toxic. Take care when handling to ensure leaves aren't damaged.
Height & Growth rate: A relatively fast-growing succulent that can reach 20 inches when mature.
