2pcs Grandidier's Baobab - Adansonia Seeds

Sempervivum smithii is a perennial deciduous, succulent shrublets to 60 cm high. It has rather untypical characteristics that distinguish it from other aeoniums. The leaves are spotted on the underside only, and when these fall off, there remains along the lower edge of the cicatrices a row of stiff hairs. After the falling of the leaves the hairiness increases and the stem becomes generally hispid (shaggy), though older stems tend to lose these hair. The leaves are spoon-shaped, undulated with many soft hairs, deep green with red stripes on both sides velvety to the touch and glossy on the upper surface. It is extremely prolific in blossoms, the flower stalks are up 15 cm tall above the rosettes of leaves. The flower are yellow 2.5 cm across, have usually 10-12 petals, eighteen stamens, and 10-12 pistils.

Leaves: 13-30 mm long, 1-1.5 mm thick, spoon-shaped or paddle-shaped, apically acuminate, basally cuneate, glossy above, puberulent, with conspicuous longitudinal brownish tannic stripes especially on the lower face. They have wavy margins, with the waviness varying from slight to pronounced, with conical cilia (less than 0.3 mm long) and some additional hairs (0.1 - 0.5 mm long). The leaves also have lengthwise purple or brownish dashes, especially on the undersides, and these are thickened water-storing structures.
Inflorescence: Floriferous part 4-15 long, 4-9 cm broad. Peduncle 4 -40 cm tall.
Flowers: 8- to 12- merous. Pedicels 1-9 mm long, puberulent. Sepals puberulent. Petatls 7-9 mm long, 2-2.5 mm wide, lanceolate, acute, yellow, with reddish lines; Filaments glabrous.
Chromosome number: 2n = 36.

Habit: It is a richly branched perennial succulent plant characterized by its distinctly creeping habit that forms dense cushions of many almost equally large rosettes, on slender creeping stems.
Stems: Procumbent, wiry, 1 to 2 mm in diameter.
Rosettes: Minuscule, very dense, hemispherical to shortly cylindrical in side view 6-14(-20) in diameter, mostly pinkish-grey. In cultivation Monanthes polyphylla often loses this characteristic tinge, and remains green or purplish.
Leaves: Tiny, soft and succulent, narrow obovate, cylindrical or club-shaped, rounded or truncated and crowded in a rosulate manner with entire margins and light green in colour. Lamina 3-6 mm long, 1-2 mm wide and about 1 mm thick. Lower surface often with few short glandular hairs. Tip densely papillose.
Inflorescences (racemes): Terminal, unbranched or branched from its base. Pedicels densely glandular-hairy 10 to 20 mm long generally 1 flowered.
Flowers: Small, stellate, purplish, 4 to 9 mm in diameter. Calyx densely hairy. Petals 6 to 9, narrow elongated, pointed or tapered 3.1-4.2 mm long and 0.4-0.6 mm wide hardly longer than the calyx scales of flower. Petals margins with glandular hairs.
Blooming season: From end of May until end of June

Not to be confused with cactus; nearly all cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti.

Succulent plants have thickened stems, or leaves, such as this Aloe
In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. Some definitions also include roots, thus geophytes that survive unfavorable periods by dying back to underground storage organs may be regarded as succulents. In horticultural use, the term "succulent" is sometimes used in a way which excludes plants that botanists would regard as succulents, such as cacti. Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance, as well as their ability to thrive with relatively minimal care.

Many plant families have multiple succulents found within them (over 25 plant families). In some families, such as Aizoaceae, Cactaceae, and Crassulaceae, most species are succulents. The habitats of these water preserving plants are often in areas with high temperatures and low rainfall, such as deserts. Succulents have the ability to thrive on limited water sources, such as mist and dew, which makes them equipped to survive in an ecosystem which contains scarce water sources.

A general definition of succulents is that they are drought resistant plants in which the leaves, stem or roots have become more than usually fleshy by the development of water-storing tissue. Other sources exclude roots as in the definition "a plant with thick, fleshy and swollen stems and/or leaves, adapted to dry environments. This difference affects the relationship between succulents and "geophytes" – plants that survive unfavorable seasons as a resting bud on an underground organ. These underground organs, such as bulbs, corms and tubers, are often fleshy with water-storing tissues. Thus if roots are included in the definition, many geophytes would be classed as succulents. Plants adapted to living in dry environments such as succulents are termed xerophytes. However, not all xerophytes are succulents, since there are other ways of adapting to a shortage of water, e.g., by developing small leaves which may roll up or having leathery rather than succulent leaves. Nor are all succulents xerophytes, since plants like Crassula helmsii are both succulent and aquatic.

Those who grow succulents as a hobby use the term in a different way from botanists. In horticultural use, the term succulent regularly excludes cacti. For example, Jacobsen's three volume Handbook of Succulent Plants does not cover cacti,and "cacti and succulents" is the title or part of the title of many books covering the cultivation of these plants.However, in botanical terminology, cacti are succulents. Horticulturists may also exclude other groups of plants, e.g., bromeliads. A practical, but unscientific, horticultural definition is "a succulent plant is any desert plant that a succulent plant collector wishes to grow. Such plants less often include geophytes (in which the swollen storage organ is wholly underground) but do include plants with a caudex, which is a swollen above-ground organ at soil level, formed from a stem, a root or both.

A further difficulty is that plants are not either succulent or non-succulent. In many genera and families there is a continuous gradation from plants with thin leaves and normal stems to those with very clearly thickened and fleshy leaves or stems, so that deciding what is a succulent is often arbitrary. Different sources may classify the same species differently
