Variegated Bear Paw Succulent

4 Reviews   |  
  •  Cotyledon tomentosa subsp. ladismithiensis, native to South Africa, is also known as Cotyledon Bear Paw or Bear’s Paw.

     It is a succulent shrublet up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall. It is densely branched and covered with fine tiny white hairs, giving it a velvety look. The leaves are up to 2 inches (5 cm) long, fleshy, lime-green, with creamy yellow variegation and sometimes reddish tips. These leaves usually have from 1 to 3 apical teeth, resembling the "bear claws".

     Cotyledon Bear's Paw produces clusters of yellow to orange-red bell-shaped flowers in late spring.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  •  Porous.

     Bright light and ample airflow.

     Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch then let drain completely.

     Feed with a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.

     Sempervivum Grape Tone can easily be propagated by separating and replanting offsets in planting medium.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil.

  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Love this company

So this was part of my 2nd order along with the red lion... It arrived quickly like it did the first time, now when I received it it wasn’t a very happy camper and many of its claws/leaves had already fallen off and keeper falling off it was a bit disappointing so I gave it a little water and placed it in a pot next to the rest of my succulents and still it did not look happy. so I quickly emailed the succulent box and informed them of the issue and how I was a bit disappointed and asked if maybe I could return it. Shortly after I sent email they responded and quickly were able to fix the problem quickly and satisfying. Being honest the way the dealt with my small issues and how they went above and beyond to fix it proved to me that this is a company that truly cares about there product and also about there customers. They truly are in amazing company that really cares..In a time where business Souly care about profit it is a true rare quality this company has with how they care. I am now on my 3rd order with them and waiting for the 3rd one to arrive but already looking into my 4th order
