Growth Rate

Even though Calico Hearts are a slow-growing succulent, they are still loved by gardeners all around the globe.


In the spring and autumn season, the plant produces white-pink or yellowish-green flowers that are tube-shaped.

Watering and Feeding

Use the soak and dry method for watering. Reduce frequency in winter but do not let them shrivel. Feed with a fertilizer that is appropriate for cacti during the growing seasons.


Simply put, Adromischus Maculatus thrives in a well-drained soil mix. Even though they are happy growing in small pots, they do require a sandy mix.


Calico Hearts grows best in the spring and autumn season, keeping in mind its frost tolerance of anywhere between -3.9° C (25° F) to 10° C (50° F) and 9b to 11b hardiness zone.


Mottled Pigs Ears require bright sunlight to grow. Since too much direct light can lead to sunburn, ensure that they are exposed to just the right amount of light.


The plant can be propagated by leaf or stem cuttings. Twist off a leaf and let it dry out for a few days before you insert the stem partially into the soil.

The best part about Mottled Pigs Ears is that it brings joy to anyone who nurtures it and can survive in even less-than-ideal conditions.
