Description:

It is an extremely original succulent, for this reason it is highly appreciated by collectors but also only by those who like to bring a touch of innovation in their environments. It has erect or semi-prostrate stems, on which grow spherical but slightly pointed leaves that do not exceed one centimeter in size; they take exactly the shape of a three-dimensional tear (which is why it is commonly known as "string of tears). The beautiful foliage is arranged in a thick way along the stems, generating a sort of bush of small spheres with all the microscopic points pointing upwards, thus giving rise to an extremely scenic complex to which contributes the beautiful green-bluish glaucous, waxy but, at the same time, with translucent veins: it is impressive to observe such a quantity of details in such a small size!

Plant care:

Generally likes direct sunlight.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures, never below 5 °C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered but bright places during the winter period.

Almost all species of this genus need very scarce watering all year round, when it is evident that the plant needs it.

The soil varies greatly from species to species, however in general a well draining substrate is required.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
