(Canberra, Australia)


Mom gave it to me but no tag.
Grows and flowers well in part shade, indoors and high moisture soil.
But in full sun, the leaves become shorter and darker, never flowers.

Propagating by root separation since 2009.
Easy growing and very hardy succulent.

Comments for Frog skin look alike succulent..but no idea what it is…

Spotted plants with bulbs
by: Carmita

Omg., thank you. Finally, I know what to call this plant . I bought this as my first succulent plant last summer. I fell in love with it as it was different from the other succulents that I saw in my sister’s house. It was so small and delicate- looking when I bought it, now it has 4 bulbs. No idea what it was. The tag just said- Succulent.

This is one of my favorite little plants! They’re technically a succulent, because of the fleshy bulb, but tend to be more similar to a bulbous plant.

They are easy to grow, in fact they thrive on neglect, making them the perfect companion plant to other succulents. I’ve seen them grown en masse as a ground cover below other plants that need more light, as they are best grown in a bit of shade.
