The cutest Bear Paws out there!

Cotyledon tomentosa

This is one of just two furry succulents I own. The Bear Paws is a common name for this Cotyledon and that is because of the shape of its leaves. The look like little, fluffy paws with nails. Totally adorable! And in case you think "it just looks like that, it probably not as fluffy as it looks". Well it is! So nice and fuzzy to touch.

Last year I almost lost it due to heavy rains and over watering. I think I managed to save it though and it seems to be growing nicely now. Yay!

Do you keep it in full sun?

No, they get some sun during the day but it is dappled.
