Description: The genus Adromischus (Adromischus) includes about 70 species of plants of the Tolstyankov family. Adromiscus grow in South and South-West Africa. The name of the genus, translated from Greek, means "thick-stemmed". Adromiscus are undersized shrubs or perennial herbaceous plants with juicy, often variegated, spotted, sometimes pubescent leaves. The short, thick, recumbent stem is densely covered with rusty-red aerial roots that absorb moisture from the air. The flowers are collected in a spike-shaped raceme on a relatively long peduncle. Corolla petals partially grow together, forming a narrow tube.
The most popular species with red and dark green spots on the leaves, but with a lack of light, these spots disappear. Like all bastards, adromiscus are unpretentious and undemanding to care for, in addition, they are rarely affected by pests.
Marianne's Adromiscus 'Little Spheroid' - a rather rare succulent of small size, highly branched, with succulent leaves on thick stems, sometimes continuing in thick fibrous roots. Leaves hemispherical to elliptical, gray-green to grayish-brown in color, up to 3 cm long, arranged in a spiral on the main stem. The inflorescence is a thorn-like thyrsa with one peduncle up to 25 cm in height. The flowers are pale pink, up to 1.2 cm long.
Care: Prefers bright and sunny lighting. South, south-east, south-west windows without shading. In summer, a sunny balcony is desirable. The temperature is moderate, in winter it is desirable to keep it at 8-12 ° C.
In summer, adromiscus is watered moderately, allowing the soil to dry out. The plant, even during the growth period, does not tolerate excess moisture. In winter, watering is stopped, subject to cold wintering. If the plant is kept at room temperature, watering is sparse and careful. The plant does not need spraying.
The substrate is an earthen mixture enriched with a large amount of sand. You can use the following soil recipe: garden soil, humus, coarse sand in a ratio of 2: 2: 3. It will be useful to add a little bone meal, eggshells and charcoal, brick chips to the resulting substrate.It will not be a mistake if you use ready-made storey soil as a substrate for adromiscus, the purpose of which is to plant and transplant cacti and succulents of any kind. For the prevention of rot, the plant needs a very loose, well-drained substrate and a low pot (bowl). Soil - a mixture of leafy humus, sand and peat land in equal parts. Good drainage is a must. Frequent transplants are not needed.
Fertilization of the soil under adromiscus is produced with a mineral concentrate for cacti and succulents. It can be purchased from a specialist store. Top dressing is necessary for the plant throughout the growing season, that is, from March to September. On the contrary, in the autumn-winter season, it is useless. The frequency of fertilizing the soil in spring and summer is once a month.
