This miniature succulent is a member of the bromeliad family and is a true survivor able to grow over rocks and cliff faces. Very slow growing this species forms an impenetrable matt and will survive anywhere. Established plants can live months without water.
Position - any sunny or partially shaded position in any soil or climate, indoors only in sunny positions otherwise they will lose their nice shape. Flowering will only occur in good light. Will take frosts and extreme heat.
Watering - can be watered all year round and grow fastest in the warmer months, plants will survive without water for very ling 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.
