Adromischus flowers usually have a greenish-white tube and pink or reddish corolla. Adromischus cristatus is a small, slow-growing succulent which produces 5 cm branching stems and frilled, pale green leaves which are 5 cm long and up to 2.5 cm wide.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Adromischus require a free-draining gritty mix and plenty of sun. They are tolerant of cool, frost-free conditions during the winter if kept dry. Adromischus should be kept in a sunny position. Plant young plants in pots and keep indoors until they are well established. Plant outside only if they are offered frost protection through the winter months. Pot plants can be moved outside once all risk of frost has passed. They will not survive poor light or bad drainage in the wet.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

Adromischus flowers are generally small, with a greenish-white tube and pink or reddish corolla and produce sufficient nectar to start a fungal infection, especially towards the end of the growing season. As the flowers are not showy, many growers cut off the developing flower stems to avoid botrytis.
