LeavesThe leaves are formed in the shape of a Cub's Paw. The more light the plant gets the thicker and the coarser the hair will get. In low light the paws become greener in color, in higher light they will become a pale yellow. Also in high light the leaves will form tiny spots on the tips that look like the toes of a bears paw. The purpose of the hair is to shade areas of the leaf to slow down water loss
