This Molokai native is more finicky than it's Kauai relative (B. insignis). When young it can be identified by its purple stem, and it's white flowers. My first one grew for 6 mos. before dying. I didn't pamper it however, and in retrospect I believe it needed more light. Second one is in a container, and is thriving. Snails will eat their way through the stem, as I learned with a large B. insignis, so containers work well.

Native Hawaiian plant, nearly extinct. Not that different looking from the other Brighamia, though maybe a bit rarer. This one has slight darker leaves with some pattern to them. However, their main differences are in floral details. Basically they are caudiciform stems topped with a rosette of leaves (deciduous here in southern California) and white flowers protruding from among the center of the rosettes. Lives on cliff edges primarily on Molokai.
