A delightfully fleshy, soft, hairy, branching succulent that just begs to be stroked! The thick felt-like leaves have a more finely cut shape than the straight K. beharensis and have wavy margins, with a brown tinge. It is more compact too growing to about 90cm. A fine specimen for a sunny room or conservatory.
Grow in a really gritty/open compost in a heavy pot as this plant will get top heavy in time with tall stems and big leaves. The downy leaves really don't like getting splashed with water and mark easily so make sure you water at the base of the plant.
Thought to be a hybrid between beharensis and millotii
