This little plant was growing in a 4 inch container and it just happened that each off-set grew out against the inside of the container making it look like a wagon wheel. The mother plant was about 1 inch in diameter with the off-sets about 1/2 inch in diameter. The plant grows to 1/2 inch high. In an average planting these will mat very quickly.
