It is found in an area with a rather dry, rocky soil with little to some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to four centimetres in diameter. The leaves reach ten centimetres and with the greenish  flowers, the plant reach 20 centimetres.

The genera name means 'pepper-like', not as to appearance but as to kinship. The species name referring to the pattern on the leaves.
