Orostachys furusei is a cute, little small succulent with soft green-brown leaves.   up to 2 inches wide, fleshy rosettes, spread by short stolons to form an up to 1 inch tall and 18 inches wide patch. The rosettes are topped with up to 4 inches all towers jammed with tiny creamy flowers. A rosette usually flowers in the second or third year. Each spike is cone-shaped and resembles a dunce's cap, hence the common name. The flowering rosette dies after producing flowers but the younger offsets that have yet to produce flowers remain.
