Cotyledon tomentosa 'Bear's Paw' variegata


Cotyledon tomentosa 'Bear's Paw' variegata is a densely branched "shurblet" succulent, meaning that it features a branching, yet petite, growth pattern. Its green and cream variegated leaves are wedge-shaped, chubby, and coated in a layer of soft hairs which are nearly impossible to resist touching! Small, rounded teeth line the edges of each leaf, earning the plant the name of ‘Bear’s Paw,’ and often blush to a pinkish hue when exposed to high levels of light or cooler temperatures. Reaching up to 12 inches tall and wide, this variety makes a great ‘filler’ component in succulent arrangements.

While bright sun will encourage the most rapid growth, ‘Bear’s Paw’ can tolerate partially shaded conditions, making it an ideal indoor succulent. Good drainage is a must for this plant, so be sure to select a porous soil mix and water in accordance with the ‘soak and dry’ method. Ample airflow will prevent water from settling within the branches of the plant, where it can cause rot.

Bell-shaped flowers will emerge during the summer growing months, and are typically a pale coral in color. During the winter season, take care to protect the chubby leaves from freezing temperatures, which could cause permanent scarring.
