Another neat plant from South Africa. This mini succulent sure is cute. Andromischus cristatus forms plump-but-crinkly-looking leaves that's covered in microscopic hair, produces flowers by mid-summer. It can thrive indoors when grown by very bright windows and since it won't grow big, it can remain there for a while. This was one of the very first succulent that caught my attention years ago when I was just getting into the world of plants and it took a lot of neglect from me.
