This is a miniature succulent with tight compact leaves on short compact heads to 5cm tall. Masses of white flowers appear in early spring on top of growth tips. This species is very slow growing and needs protection in most climates.
Position - under protected partially shaded positions outdoors. Indoors only in sunny positions otherwise they will lose thier nice shape and colour. Flowering will only occur in good light. Will take mild frosts and moderate heat.
Watering - can be watered all year round and grow fastest in the warmer months. Plants will survive without water for very long periods and remain compact when dry.
Feeding - 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less fertiliser, the better the shape of the plant. Fertilisers high in nitrogen can produce larger plants with less colour.
Repotting - can be left to overgrow their pots, or repotted in the warmer months in almost any well drained potting mix.
