Cultivation: There's no difference in cultivation from usual plants
of this type. Though it grows more slowly.
Exposure: Needs light shade to shade.
Watering needs: regular water (They enjoy a little water during winter
period too) but do not overwater as they will most likely wind up with
root rot, and do not water again until dry! Hardy to
to -5°C (or less if dry).
The normal green and totally white offsets should be eliminated.
Propagation: Offsets (New plants are freely produced basally
between the leaves)
