Cotyledon 'Bear Paw' is one of our personal favorites at Succy Crafts. This succulent plant is considered to be a 'shrublet' meaning it is a dwarf shrub. With chubby oval leaves that have teeth like tips that make it look like paws with claws. A unique succulent because of it's variegation. The leaves develop creamy streaks with a fuzzy, hairy texture. If exposed to full sun the tips of their leaves will become hot pink! A succulent suitable for indoors or outdoors.
Native to: South Africa
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: bright indirect light

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

I have this propagating and I can't wait to have it in a pot and it get bigger.
This cutting seems to be doing well
All plants took over 10 days to arrive and were dried up and not viable. I have been sent a $30 gift card to replace them and will give it another try.
I love my new Bear Paw Succulent. Arrived packed very well and easy to repot. It is doing great under my grow lights.
