"Oreja de Ratón" (Mice Ears) are called most plants of this small genus by the Canary people. They are close to Aeonium in the family of Crassulaceae and grow in rather shaded and slightly moist places in the laurel or pine tree forest on the islands. They make lose racemes of several hundred sulfur to greenish-yellow, miniature star like flowers above usually densely pubescent succulent leaves. All are easily cultivated in any rich, slightly moist soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot throughout the year. Require careful watering and preferably full sun in winter. Will readily self-sow after flowering, when most plants will die down. For more cultivation information please have at look at this page: Sowing and cultivation of Aeonium, Aichryson and Greenovia.
Sow dust-like seeds flat on any well drained soil, keep soil slightly moist from beneath. Do not cover seeds with soil.
