This member of the Crassulaceae family was first described by George Claridge Druce in 1916. It's found in the southern part of Africa, growing in a well-drained soil, little water and doing fine in the shadows. It will reach 2,5 meters. If it is dried totally out in the summer (6-7-8), it will flower with fine small white flowers in January. Can easy be reproduced by leaves, cuttings and seeds. I got mine from a friend around 1987.

It has been spread all around the world.


The nominate colour is almost white,

This one is quiet pink (more without flash!)
