Succulent with huge weird fleshy and furry leaves, which have to be touched. Avoid directly wetting the leaves especially in winter when the plant should be kept on the dry side. The plants soon become top-heavy so are best grown in a terracotta pot or similar using John Innes no.1 plus grit. Large plants may have green-yellow flowers in winter, though this is unlikely under UK conditions.
