Common Name: ravioli plant, crinkle-leaf plant
Origin: Adromischus cristatus originates from the succulent thickets of Humansdorp, Eastern Cape, South Africa. It is uncommon in its natural habitat, which includes shady rock outcrops and rocky slopes.
Description: A. cristatus is a dwarf succulent with a distinctive appearance from which the common name “ravioli plant” is derived. It develops loose rosettes of thick, triangular leaves with crested or wavy edges, resembling a ravioli. Covered in a light coating of hair, the leaves possess a glaucous coloring and a felt-like texture. Flowering usually occurs in spring, resulting in small off-white or red flowers blossoming from a tall stem in the main plant.
