Cotyledon is a genus that includes numerous varieties of perennial shrubby leaf and stem succulents native to Southern Africa and the Arabian peninsula. Cotyledon succulents usually have tubular orange or salmon-pink flowers with curled petal tips that bloom in the summer.

Cotyledon succulents exhibit a versatile range, from small, adorable plants to medium-sized shrubs that can reach up to 2 meters in height. All share the common features of succulent leaves and thickened stems, contributing to their hardiness and resilience. The name "Cotyledon" is derived from the first two leaves that emerge from the seed of a dicotyledonous plant upon germination. These leaves manifest as opposing, large, and fleshy rounded structures.

What makes Cotyledon succulents especially appealing is their adaptability. They are well-suited to thrive in various environments, showcasing hardy drought tolerance. Whether grown outdoors in gardens or as container plants, Cotyledon succulents are easy to nurture, making them an excellent choice for both seasoned growers and beginners alike.

Tips For Cotyledon Growth and Care

Cotyledon is relatively easy to care for. They are quite hardy as long as their basic needs are met. They can be grown indoors with ease as well as outdoors, provided the climate is warm enough.


Due to the protective layer of pruinose, Cotyledon loves to be in partial to full sun, and prefers shade in the summer, however, direct sunlight could cause sunburn. When grown indoors, they thrive on bright, indirect light. 


We recommend using a cactus mix or very fast-draining potting soil. For garden plantings, the ideal soil is sandy and well-drained soil.

Most species of Cotyledon are quite adaptable and can grow in most types of containers. The important feature of a pot to consider is drainage to keep them happy and healthy.


Water thoroughly only when the soil is dry to the touch (about every 2 weeks). Never let your succulents sit in water and do NOT water on the leaves. Don't forget to learn how to water your succulents the right way.

You can water more often if you live in areas with hot weather because your soil will dry out faster. Reduce watering in winter because the succulent can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for an extended amount of time.

How do cotyledons propagate?

The best way to propagate your Cotyledon is by cuttings or leaves. Cuttings can be rooted wherever you’d like them to grow, and leaves can be propagated in the soil and later transplanted.
