From http://www.cactuscollection.com:

South African native (Eastern Cape, Noorsveld) Dwarf succulent, forms shrublets with cylindrical tapered silvery-green leaves 1 to 2 inches long marbled with purple spots. Great window sill plant up to 3 inches tall. Let the soil dry between soaking; in the wild it receives rain mostly in spring and fall. Can be propagated by leaf cuttings or seeds. Protect from frost.

I have managed to get three leaves to root and produce small plants for me. It is not the fastest at growing from a leaf, but it is certainly rewarding nonetheless.

I've noticed the spots becoming darker in sunlight and for the most part it requires very little care.

An excellent plant for those who are absentminded of plants.

I have not grown this plant. It can have a striped variegation on some leaves if the light it receives is "just right". The tips of the leaves can be slightly indented.

Note: Adromischus seeds are very small and seed propagation is rarely used. It is easily propagated by leaf cuttings. Twist off a leaf and permit it to dry out a couple of days, lay it on the soil and insert the stem end partially into the soil. The original leaf should not be removed until it has dried up. Try to keep the leaf somewhat upright so that the roots are able to grow downward. If grown in a container, bottom watering by immersing the container is recommended.
