An interesting succulent Corpuscularia lehmannii with its thick fleshy leaves that grow in opposite pairs is rare in cultivation.
The leaves are a sort of icy olive green, and the stem itself is thick and red to pink in colour.
Over time it will reach around 25 cm in height (10 inches) and will form a dense clump of icy green foliage.
A variegated form is also available, similar green leaves with creamy yellow variegation.
This is a plant that requires good light to get good colour into the foliage. Some direct sun is best, although very hot afternoon sun in warmer zones should be avoided.
It is not a frost tolerant plant, requires good drainage, and should only be watered as the growing medium/soil begins to dry out.
A free drianingsucculent potting mix is essential.
Use a slow release fertiliser applied once a year, just a pinch will do and never over fertiliser as this can cause fast growth and stretching.
Like most succulents it will flower, usually in spring to summer. The flowers themselves are small and yellow. Small seed capsules follow the flowers.
The plant is dormant during winter months and watering diring this period should be kept to a minimum.
